the solution would probably be a portable dev server that is modified to
do syncing/conflict check - then you could download just conflicting
nodes (and region) in josm, resolve them, upload and wait for sync with
of course this solution is purely theoretical but the code exists for
dev server and conflict checking (which'd need to be ported from java to
ruby) and add a new interface for a conflict-bbox (get all conflicts
with 1km radius (or square for simplicity) within x1y1:x2y2)
would be useful for mapping parties, too.
