I brought this up in IRC a few weeks back, and I know its been brought
up before that.
It's also appeared on the mls before, Richard's response pretty much
sums it up..

I'll also note that it was originally announced on the JOSM mailing list here:
http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/josm-dev/2007-October/000181.html
Frederik does make a good point that it could be used for good. I did
try ripping apart the source to find the server config, but came to a
dead end - it would be useful as a TMS client for JOSM (which I've
been desparately looking for to use Richard's NPE tiles with)...
