There is no migration task from 0.4 to 0.5 format though. So you'll be
able to read 0.4 planet files, extract the Slovenia region, and write
the result to a 0.4 file. You won't be able to save the result in 0.5
format. The only method I'm aware of for migrating 0.4 data to 0.5
format is the migration script that runs on the mysql database. I hope
that is still available somewhere.
As for tagging, I'd be happy to see key older revisions of osmosis
tagged as well. I'll do it one day if nobody beats me to it.
