Since OSM has a quite different data structure than shapefiles
(topological vs. simple features) it can be difficult. Plus there is
no generic solution for converting the attributes into OSM tags.
You'll likely have to script a custom solution. A good place to start
would be http://boston.freemap.in/osm/files/mgis_to_osm.py or
http://perrygeo.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/gis-bin/nhd_to_osm.py
