I have a feeling that the relevant lines of code may be disabled at the
moment in osm2pgsql. It was implemented by some of the commented out
noded() lines in build_geometry.cpp. I think I removed them when I had
some problems getting this to work with the 0.5 relation handling and
never found the need to put them back again.
