I've been working on such a thing a year ago - I managed to get Kosmos to
save OSM data from an OSM XML file into a  Spatialite database and then use
it for rendering.

The source code is currently in hibernation, since I switched my development
efforts from Kosmos to Maperitive, but I'm planning to include it into
Maperitive in the following months.
