I've been using it for a few days now and it looks promising; I might be 
able to publish regular .osm.pbf extracts soon (and kick out the .bz2 
stuff soon after).

One minor bug I've found is that when I try

osmosis --fast-read-xml in.xml --buffer --write-bin out.osm.pbf 

and accidentally run this in a directory where I do not have write 
access, I get

java.io.FileNotFoundException: out.osm.pbf (Permission denied)
org.openstreetmap.osmosis.core.OsmosisRuntimeException: Argument 
compress for task 3-write-bin was not recognised.

The latter message is obviously bogus, as compress=none is accepted fine 
when the output file is writable.
