Hello,

we are a company from Karlsruhe (Germany) developing a web service for truck routing. For geocoding we use our own instance of Nominatim. Since the results searching for suburbs of a city with Nominatim's special phrases were not sufficient for us, we added some functionality. Now we get the suburbs (including the suburbs that are of type administrative) of a city by parsing Nominatim's detail page of this city. For this reason we added suburb.php (modified details.php) and two templates so that we get the results as json or html.
Maybe someone else can need this functionality too.

Commit of Aug 23, 2012:
Added two templates (html, json) for displaying results of suburb
search. Used details.php as pattern to search for suburbs
(boundary:administrative, place:suburb, place:village), modified it,
result is suburb.php
