There's a good chance of this happening, yes.

I've added a ticket for this request
(you can do the same yourself using your openstreetmap account details)

If anyone else has experience parsing shapefiles, could you let us
know in the ticket comments - this seems to be the best reference out
there: http://www.esri.com/library/whitepapers/pdfs/shapefile.pdf am I
right?  If you know of good Ruby and/or Java code to read and
manipulate shapefiles, that would speed things up a lot I think.
