I should have announced it, but you all know now :)

The tile server is currently importing the hourly diffs and it seems  to
be operating well. I want to start using the new tile expiry code in
osm2pgsql and then I'll move over to importing the minutely updates.

There may be some cases which don't work correctly when applied as a
diff so I'll still run a weekly import each Wednesday.
