OK, in that case you probably don;t need materials that I linked

Unfortunately there is no really good library for Overpass access - I was looking for one
some time ago and found nothing that would work well (maintained, support for 
queries longer than URL limit, support for filesystem caching).

Yes - I was not proposing any new way.
