Ah yes. Forgot to specify that the tool will be released under an open
source license (MIT, I believe but not certain). Not sure when the code
will be made available but I would guess sometime within the next month.

In case you're curious, we make heavy use of PostGIS, osm2pgsql, and
osm2pgrouting. The whole thing runs on an Ubuntu VM with Vagrant. As you
might expect, large cities are computationally expensive and might set you
back several days running the calcs on a consumer desktop. For home use it
works perfectly fine on the scale of a neighborhood or small-to-medium
sized city.
