[OSM-dev] Munitely updated regional osm2pgsql database

The next best thing that could happen... is to have osm2pgsql (and maybe
similar other tools like imposm) to take advantage of augmented diffs
produced by overpass-API.

These augmented diffs have 2 benefits:
- they are created thru your own query (so you can get them for any area,
like the bbox of your choice)
- they are greatly self-contained*, making most of the awful slim tables**
not required anymore

We simply need someone to implement their support... I expected to have a
student doing that this summer, but it will not be the case.

This is on top of my "OSM dev wish list":

* they contain ways related to modified nodes, as well as nodes related to
ways... making the planet_osm_ways table useless for updated
** as a reminder: osm2pgsql "slim" tables... they take 250GB of space on a
planet database, where you have around 150-200GB of useful
point/line/roads/polygon data.
