Recently, I think in 2007, Peru switched over to regions. This affects, which should be renamed to PERegionSelect. Also, the Callao Region should be added.

Another issue, although related to this change, is that the Province of Lima (which is separate from Lima Region) is not part of any Region. This is similar to the U.S., where Washington D.C. is independent from other states. The difference is that more than one third of Peru's population lives in the Lima and Callao Metropolitan Area.

The proposed solution is to create a PEDivisonSelect (and, subsequently, a USDivisionSelect), which include all top-level divisions of the countries. Note that, for example, USStateSelect includes Puerto Rico, which is not a state, but a commonwealth. ( It would be included in USDivisionSelect.

I don't understand how a patch that cannot be applied can be marked as "ready for checkin". This patch patches a non-existent file. Could triagers please be careful when changing the ticket states.

Patch needs improvement so that it applies to trunk before it can go in.

This should work correctly.

(In [8230]) Fixed #7575 -- Peru now has regions, not departments (changed at some pointi n
the last year or so). Thanks andresj and programmerq.

This is backwards incompatible if you're using the Peruvian localflavor.
