He said it would definitely be feasible to implement an extent parameter but that would require some significant rewriting effort. I am willing to look into this but it's in Java which is not my weapon of choice.. I would love to have a full history for a few larger areas at some point so it would make sense for me to implement this.

Are there any existing tools that could do the processing though? Would osmosis for example be able to extract a bbox-defined subset of the history.osm file?
