We should invent an incrmental update strategy like this:

- Release of a current world.osm each week
  -> name should be e.g. world_20070406.osm

- Then this week a incremental update:
  -> name should be world_diff_20070406_on_20070331.osm

- Then next week a incremental update:
  -> name should be world_diff_20070413_on_20070406.osm


So each one knows which diff fits for which world file. The diff files
should be archived for at least several month. So I could update my
world file even if I missed to update for some weeks. In this case I
apply several diff files after the other.
