the planet export is nice and useful, but I feel like a weekly diff 
would be probably more efficient.
I have created a tool that exports such a diff from my postgres 
database, and have put an example file that's a diff from
http://planet.openstreetmap.org/planet-061120.osm.bz2
to
http://planet.openstreetmap.org/planet-061128.osm.bz2

that is available at :
http://osm.navsys.org/tiles/planet-2006-11-28.diff.osm.bz2

the concept is similar to an incremental backup ...

if steevec would come up with a similar diff for the next planets, it 
would probably make things faster
