Ok, any hints on where I can find a planet-level .pbf file?  The only 
files I can find when linking from the Planet page 
(http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Planet) download section are for the 
more traditional bz2 files (planet-<date>-osm.bz2).

I found local area extracts in pbf format, but no planet pbf.  I'm still 
trying to grok the options and appreciate the continuing assistance.
