Is there likely to be a noticeable performance improvement in doing this?
My preference if the overhead is small would be to add a contrib script to
Osmosis that installs a non-truncating table that is updated by
osmosisUpdate, and a customised osmosisUpdate function.  It keeps the pgsql
tasks simpler if I can do that.

Then again, this is probably not a complicated change to make to Osmosis
itself.  I'd need to take a look ...
