Ah, that was not clear to me. In general, why would you bother someone who just 
wants the latest database with the full history?

Thanks, much appreciated.

And IMHO it is not very considerate to expect people who just want to have the 
database to have them install rails and then get the output of one mangy little 

For all I'm worth, the latest database structure should be available for 
download as an easy create script. Just include it in Osmosis or so. I mean: you 
only have to include the script that osmosis works with (currently 0.5 and 0.6), 
it's not like there are a dozen versions to consider.
