[OSM-dev] Feature locator powered by main OSM database?

Hello everyone,

I forget - did anyone ever write a feature locator powered off the main 
OSM database?
e.g. give me all pubs within 1 mile of 50.9, -1.4.

The nearest thing seems to be Nick Burch's "Where am I?" but that's based 
off planet.osm, not the live database.

Would such a thing be worth writing as an API feature (i.e. would it be 
incorporated into the API while it's still at 0.4) or would it be better 
done as a proxy script?
