Overpass API has now a XAPI compability layer. It can answer the more common 
XAPI queries, details are explained on the wiki:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API#XAPI_Compability_Layer

Example queries are
http://www.overpass-api.de/api/xapi?map?bbox=7.1,51.2,7.2,51.3
or
http://www.overpass-api.de/api/xapi?*[bbox=7.1,51.2,7.2,51.3][name=Weststraße]

Feel free to produce rather a lot of load. Although this is still a 
development server, I need a realistic load test. The server should have a 
primitive yet working protection against overload, so you cannot harm anybody.

Cheers,

Roland
