How does this import compare with the US DAFIF data? The DAFIF data has
the locations of 10000+ airports and details of the runway layouts.

I wrote a perl script a while ago to convert the ARPT/RWY files into OSM
but never uploaded any data because I didn't get a definitive answer
about the suitability of the DAFIF licence.

The conflict resolution code could be useful. I didn't attempt to do
this in my script.
