Yes, this uses the same URL schema as the NearMap / OOC maps the
slippymap plugin already supports, so it's just a matter of dropping
it into the defaults somewhere I would think.
However the imagery isn't correctly rectified at the moment and JOSM
only allows you to move the WMS backround, not the SlippyMap backround
so this imagery is pretty useless at the moment if you're using JOSM.
