An OSM cookbook sounds like a wonderful idea. There are print on
demand setups you could think about putting it through, if you wanted
to get carried away. http://wndw.net/ is a good technical book done
this way. I don't think it's that likely there will be a second
edition of "Mapping Hacks". And so much would need to be changed,
since summer 2004, it would be at least half a completely different book.
