Well once you have a pbf planet, you only have to grind through the .osc 
files each day (--read-change diff.osc --read-bin planet.pbf --ac 
--write-bin new-planet.pbf).

This is something that has now become a lot easier because before you 
would either have to reserve ~ 320 GB of HD space for that or pay a very 
hefty performance price by having Osmosis read from, and write to, 
compressed files.
