Checkout Revision 1226.
I just added an new possibility to read the file:
will read an xxx.osm file and hopefully check against this files content.
I didn't check completely yet, but at least it seems to read the data for now.
If it works it should shorten your procedure a lot.
If you can give me feedback would be great.
