We have some ideas about this. But I agree this is an hairy issue.

As you may have observed the 'unique key' per Z-line isn't unique either 
(because is unique in combination with the bitfeld), but must be unique 
for GTFS, hence requires a new id.

You can do a distinct on routes, which we will be doing. But it requires a 
smart reverse mapping (for example with a CTE aggregation).
