I'm somewhat torn on the usefulness of this in ogr2osm. It's on my to-do
list as an option, but in practice I find it's often more work to deal with
merging multipolygons than to merge ways and split them after merging.

If you do add to ogr2osm, can you pull my changes. A few of the changes are
related to the existing MP creation code as well as node de-duplication
