What do you think about integrating this protocol into the OSM server?
I think it would be very useful in some application areas. And, maybe,
we get more performance if it will access database directly, not
through the proxy.

I saw it. It uses Adam's server, hosted on http://www.symbianos.org
(correct me if not :). However, i thought that there is a direct
support by OSM.
