Ehh... not sure OSMZmiany is the best tool for this. Once you get a
lot of nodes loaded in, it takes up a few hundred MB of RAM and
performs like crap. Like 5 seconds to zoom/pan. However I do have an
idea or two to make something that would work better. I will have to
tinker with it tonight and see if it is practical.

There was something like this back when the TIGER import was new to
help people connect major highways across county lines. Does anyone

It is documented here:
