Might be google compatible, but the only URL format I've been able to
make work in JOSM is what I replied with in that thread:

http://example.com/tiles/z/x/y.[jpg|png]

I currently use the following URL to make it work:

tms:http://localhost/nearmap-tiles/

Then in lighttpd.conf I have:

url.redirect                    +=
("^/nearmap-tiles/(.+)/(.+)/(.+)\.(.*)$" =>
"http://www.nearmap.com/maps/nml=Vert&x=$2&y=$3&z=$1" )
url.redirect                    +=
("^/nearmap-date/(.+)/(.+)/(.+)/(.+)\.(.*)$" =>
"http://www.nearmap.com/maps/nmd=$1&nml=Vert&x=$3&y=$4&z=$2" )

The apache equivalent is on the wiki still:
