[OSM-dev] Boundingboxing a relation/relation

Questions in the series: how to build your own api server.

- What does 'visible' actually mean?

- How is a recursive relationship boundingboxed for a map request?

The DTD allows:

  <member type="relation" ...>

How is a relation within a relation (even deeper levels) solved if a map 
request with a specific bounding box is fetched?

I can imagine that verything is in essence a node, so one could work 
from nodes to relationships. And might (iteratively) work from 
relationships to relationship pointers.

Some comments will be appreciated :)
