My rough estimate would be that it *may* happen around the end of this 
year, but more likely around mid-2012. Of course this depends heavily on 
how good we are at stopping data importers going crazy ;-)

Just look at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/File:Osmdbstats2.png and 
ask yourself when that line reaches ~2 billion (take into account that 
the line only indicates the number of visible nodes; the highest node id 
tends to be about 20% higher than the number of visible nodes).
