 These both now work after updating the dataset:
  - https://api.wordpress.org/events/1.0/?location=Bad%20Gottleuba-
  - https://api.wordpress.org/events/1.0/?location=Gie%C3%9Fen

 I've migrated it from the limited dataset to the full 12million cities
 dataset, just so there's less to update in the future.

 In doing that, it's introduced some "bugs" in what previously worked, but
 no longer does, for example, `Australia` previously matched the country,
 where as now it matches [https://www.geonames.org/4017961/australia.html a
 region in mexico]. But it does also now know where
 [https://api.wordpress.org/events/1.0/?location=Secret%20Rocket%20Yards my
 Secret Rocket Yards] are.

 I'm going to leave this open to see if any reports come in of breakage
 from the update.
