[Talk-us] 2009 TIGER Shapefiles now available

It would be handy to get just the diff files.   I did a diff in SQL against the named ways, but it would be handy to have a diff .OSM file for everyone to start with that contains all changes.   I'm not sure how to do that.

Reasonably easy to do yourself with Ian's java shp-to-osm.  The worst part I have had was county wide osm converted tiger files in JOSM.  But tat can be avoided several ways.

A side note, with JOSM is there a way to copy from one layer to another while maintaining position?  I have done it a few times in the past with copy and paste and then repositioning, but I would prefer to maintain the exact position.
