It would be great if you could check whether your reader still works
with the current implementation, and then I'd be extremely grateful for
some sort of minimal package that contains only your reader and the
stuff absolutely necessary to build it - I've checked out your
http://github.com/h4ck3rm1k3/OSM-Osmosis but ended up with a tree that
contained half (or al?) of Osmosis and lots of autoconf cruft but wasn't
buildable for me because it expected Google protobuf stuff to be
downloaded and installed separately and I didn't know what to get and
where to install it!
Background is, I would like to add binary format support to osm2pgsql
and was hoping to be able to use your code for that.
Scott, it would be great if apart from a name for the new binary format
you'd also recommend a default file extension since some of our tools
try to auto-detect the file format from the name (.osm.bz2, .osm.gz,
.osm - maybe .osm.bin for the new stuff?).
