Ah that's why it hasn't been working for me lately. Gah! stupid TMS coordinates! Well I can update the task description to say it doesn't work in Potlatch or older versions of JOSM if that's the best thing to do but... seems kinda lame.
Isn't it a simple fix to re-number all the tiles to flip the world the other way up?
So we could either...
* Do this on the current server by generating the tiles differently the first place
* Do this on the current server by running some little 'flip the world' script to rename the files
* wget the files onto another server and play around with such little scripts there.
* Make a 'flip the world' proxying script
