Currently relations are implemented exactly like ways in terms of
available calls; so the first one will work, the others won't. But I
like the idea, and the indexes are there anyway so I think I'll
implement the others as well.
As for Bart's criticism - I had thought that the example on the wiki
page was sufficient to illustrate the change in the way XML (it is
really not complicated - just "nd ref=..." instead of "seg id=...",
pointing to nodes instead of segments - what else is there to say?).
I'll happily provide a DTD or XML schema for you but to be honest,
you would be the first programmer I know who would prefer those over
The reason I removed the chapter about API call details is that it is
very long and 95% of it is about stuff that is there with API 0.4
already, so I felt it would confuse people; I opted for a description
of what has changed instead of a full description for the time being.
