Or the API could just dump all changes to a file as they happen, and
rotate filename every hour (or day). The file format would be .osm, but
without the first two lines:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<osm version='0.3' generator='JOSM'>

or last line:


These could be added by the rotation process, or by a script that you
could use to fetch the file, or just left off for simplicity.
