This package does not, yet, provide an interface to the OSM extended API, which is commonly abbreviated as 'XAPI', and pronounced 'zappy'. It does support version 0.6 of the OSM API 2.

    Time to move this along to the voting phase.

    Also as I can foresee the Create_KML proposal, and possibly the Math_MapProjection proposal being quite similar to this one in areas of interest, I'd suggest a new unified 'Geo' category for these to fit into (along with some helper 'packages' that may be required soon).
