Frank Jaeger has some examples (see 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/L%C3%B6hne), and he will be 
giving a talk about importing such data at the FOSSGIS 2008 in two 
weeks, in Freiburg, where one of the keynote speakers is probably the 
Freiburg guy you spoke to. So it is likely they'll meet there ;-)
