There might be another option. Given a hstore database or wikidata column it
would be very easy to build a query_wikidata psql function which will query
wikidata like this:

select query_wikidata(tags->'wikidata') from planet_osm_point where ...;

This would be only a few lines of pl/pgsql wrapper code using pgcurl:
