Again it was me who put this under "less important", not because I think
osmosis unimportant (I use it every day) but because I thought that it
does not have to by synchronized with the rest (i.e. it would just
continue to work even after the change). It seems I overlooked the fact
that the user id column is dropped on the objects so this would indeed
make existing queries fail.
All in all I have learnt from this discussion that it was unwise to use
the public Wiki as a kind of scratch pad while hacking; we should just
have kept the notes to ourselves and then present a write-up after we're
done to avoid confusion. A lot of the stuff that was on the Wiki page,
at least a lot of what I had written, was really just the equivalent of
using a whiteboard in the room, where you sketch a few things, and it
seems that others somehow read this as the Word of God as delivered
through the Wiki. I should at least have put a big "don't take any of
this seriously" on top or so.
