No, that was just extracting all segments and ways with
highway=motorway or class=motorway and then all associated nodes.

The SVG rendering of the result was quick (mainly because not much has
been tagged yet).

My plan is to create a generic filter tool using the same kind of rule
files as osmarender to be able to extract features of interest
(motorways, railways, pubs, whatever).  Since each pass of planet.osm
currently takes way too long, I think I first need to implement a rule
that filters by location.
