This alternative implementation runs over the ``addresses`` collection only once, and "backtracks" only if necessary. Inspired by a "shift-reduce" approach.

Technically both are O(n), so the best case is always the same. But the old implementation runs over the *complete* list multiple times until it cannot make any more optimisations. The new implementation only repeats the optimisation on elements which require reconciliation.

Tests on a local machine have shown a considerable increase in speed on large collections of elements (iirc about twice as fast on average).
