It still won't be possible to use 2 input streams (eg planet.osm +
planet.osc) on stdin, but at least one (probably bigger source) as it
was now with /dev/stdin. Named pipes could solve that, but AFAIK they
are not supported in Java. Sockets could work, but are not as
convenient for scripting.

Khm, how about reading http URLs directly ? :)
...And writing to ftp locations (eg to your car when in wifi range) :))

I envy you! Enjoy!
If someone would urgently need unreleased features i can make and send
him the .jar in the mean time.
