Howdy Folks,

Trying this again, after a hiatus, here is a sample of a few hundred
buildings from a UVM-SAL land use classification. In this case it's
for an area just west of D.C. in Montgomery County, MD. I offer it for
your consideration before I pull the import trigger:


Some steps I've taken to make it community-friendly include:

- Removed all buildings that intersected existing OSM features

- Removed all buildings smaller than 5000 square meters in area, since
those residential structures weren't being very well-detected anyway

- I hopehopehopehope the footprints survived their trip from QGIS
through ogr2osm to JOSM (If there's anything wrong with the tags
please let me know so I can solidify the process)

Thanks again to Andrew Guertin for adapting ogr2osm so perfectly.
Python has never been so easy.
