Speaking of "polished": The program currently produces invalid XML 
because " and & are not escaped, leading to lines like

<tag k="name" v="Gasthaus "Zum Eckenhaider Schloß""/>
<tag k="operator" v="DB Station & Service AG"/>

Same for ampersand characters in user names.

Other than that, it runs about twice as fast as Osmosis so that's a good 
sign. What does the README mean when it says: "At the time of writing it 
can only handle dense nodes"?
