[OSM-dev] osmosis, bounding boxes and updating

I'd like to keep an OSM PostGIS database for the Netherlands up-to-date 
using osmosis. I am familiarizing myself with the process of:

* create database and load schema (I use the simple schema with the 
linestring addition)
* osmosis --read-xml planet.xml --write-pgsql
* osmosis --read-change-interval-init
* osmosis --read-change-interval --write-pgsql-change

Is that the correct course of action?
Ideally I want to do this for a smaller geographical extent, but I can't 
quite put my finger on how to do the replication task for a smaller 
area. Is this possible and if so, how?
