Was this the question if segment uid and node uid could be the same?
If so I also assumed that they could not be the same and osmpedit will
probably not work properly in some cases.  Will fix this soon but I
agree that the name should be changed or that this should be
documentet properly on the API page (yes I know I can do it myself :-).
