Hi Michael,

It's awesome that it uses OAuth, I tip my hat at you for getting that
working! I hope to see many people building on your work. Could you
explain more what the ruby proxy layer does? Is it just handling the
session stuff or does it do translations between OSM API and the
javascript code?

I'll also put out a plea to any Ruby/OAuth experts that we're still
looking for someone to tackle
