Another potential use case is on-demand download of almost arbitrary 
areas; if, instead of generating tons of country extracts each night, I 
could just generate lots of little boxes that would be stitched together 
on the fly for anyone who wants to download, say, germany.osm.pbf, that 
would be quite an advantage. It would of course require a fast, 
streaming way of combining the blocks.
