    This isn't standardization, it's normalization. The USPS maintains
    databases that you can use to help you do this, and they'll point you
    to third parties who sell software that does it. It's a non-trivial
    task.

    There's a US address normalizer written in Perl available.

    http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/htdocs/Geo-StreetAddress-US/Geo/StreetAddress/US.html

    Not too big, too; it's mostly tables. Might not be too bad to convert.
