Regarding to the last svn access you wrote in osm2pgsql. Are you the
main developer? So here some more questions:

Could you write your contact into the readme.txt or a authors file?

I got all working and could search in the database with psql. It's
really eays to understand simple searches. But do you've some docs
about the database scheme or example queries? There're three tables
which are in some way linked. But without documentation the complex
searches aren't so easy.

How could I get e.g. all highways in a given bounding box?
