I have developed a osmosis-plugin that allows reading a complete history 
dump into an extended simple schema. It also capable of calculating 
node-versions for the way-nodes table and linesting-geometries for each 
version of a way. It also supports building intermediate versions for a 
way each time one of its nodes changes and populate those intermediate 
versions with a linesting, too.

All of the extended features currently only work with a lot of memory 
because the only node-store implementation is an in-memory store, so it 
won't be able to read a complete planet-history-dump with the extra 
features, but the basic operation (loading the dump into a db) should work.
