[OSM-dev] Script to merge ways with identical tags

I'm trying to convert a Shapefile of my county's streets to OSM (not
for mass imports, trust me), but every street is broken at
intersections so there are often dozens or more segments that should
be joined. Anyone have scripts or code to perform this sort of
way-merging? I did come across Frederik's merge-ways.pl script, but I
didn't have much luck with it and it seems to be designed for
rendering purposes.
