No worries, I think I'll get it working soon but I had to add support
for tasks with multiple outputs. Not a big deal but required some
I'm actually a bit confused over how using the tee utility with
planetosm-excerpt-area.pl helps you. Are you piping the output of a big
box into the smaller boxes to reduce parsing overhead?
As an aside, osmosis can also read/write from/to stdin/stdout if
necessary by using the /dev/stdin and /dev/stdout "files".

Okay, shouldn't be too difficult.
