Have you asked?

Neither am I! I just know that Joerg has used osmtrackfilter to 
semi-automatically import a lot of data at a time when we still had 
segments. It seems to me that it was quite sophisticated at the time in 
trying to find out what parts of the track are new and what parts are 
already in the database, but I don't even know if it supports ways. I 
just thought that you had perhaps built on top of that, as 
osmtrackfilter is in Perl, too.
