[OSM-talk] A tool for picking up settlements tagged as a single building?

Probably what I'm after is something that I can load up a chunk of map at a
time say a quarter of an African country from the daily dump in JOSM then a
selection based on building=yes with a certain minimum size would areasize
work for that?  Then I can use the todo list to check them one at a time.

What sort of value would I drop into areasize?  Or could I get a sample
size from <crtl>i ?

Thanks John
