Hi Walter,

Yes, I visited your website this morning. It is interesting on a
"analytic/analysis" stand-point, but in my case I'll have to do some
post-processing on the raw data and the definition of the project is not
yet set, so I'd prefer an in-house tool with full control on the
source-code and process of extraction.

In the end, I'm sure I'll need at least all countries of the world up to
the admin level 2 (With their capitals, if they have one (And aren't one
themselves)) and all the data associated with them on OSM.
