Batch update - Fix name slashes and spaces should also work on _AKA, _HEB, _MARNM and ROMN names, not only on the NAME.

    I've fixed this for _MARNM and _AKA.

    These tags are used exclusively in NAME records. ROMN/FONE/etc. can be used in other contexts. Do you have a problem with these records? This problem is introduced by other applications, which don't typically support these tags.

    Yes, I have had problems with the name _HEB records.
    We use only PGV to update the site data.
    We need to fill the spaces and slashes by ourselves and sometimes we err.

    The difficulty is distinguishing between

    2 _HEB John/Smith

    and

    2 _HEB Florida/Georgia USA

    Yes - it can be done (anything *can* be done), but the current design of this plugin only matches on single lines.

    I understand.

    Could at least gedcheck warn on such errors in the 2 _HEB names (and in any types of names)?
