Hi Nathan:

I've got pretty beefy hardware, but the "Bay Area" shapefile pointed to by your recent post chokes my JOSM to a gasping strangle:  >3.7 million objects?!  These need to be broken up further to smaller files, to either the county level or even smaller to a sub-county level, in a sane way.  You may as well save them as .osm files (and host them on some other place besides a Microsoft cloud), as shapefiles still remain a "foreign" (though importable) format within OSM.
