Osmosis will provide the capability to do this from 0.6 onwards. If
disk space isn't an issue on the planet server I'll set it up as soon as
I get time after 0.6 goes live. It has the ability to go back in time
and produce full history diffs for any time interval in the same way it
currently has the ability to produce delta diffs for any time interval.
Again, if disk space isn't an issue I can create them for the life of OSM.
