Thanks for this - I had never heard of OSM3S.   I'll have a look at it.
It sounds as though the database handling is part of the OSM3S code, rather
than using an external database engine?
If the hardware requirements are as modest as you say I can imagine using
this as a replacement for  calling xapi to download town sized areas of OSM
data for rendering.
