There's a work in progress with Python and OSM, maybe it could be of
interest for your development:

> Some plugins are a bit to extensive for my bachelor thesis (I can maximal
> write about 40 pages), so I pick up the suggestion with the OpenStreetMap
> plugin and modify it a little.
> Sometimes I'm in the situation, that I want to show somebody a track or
> something, but didn't have the appropriate background data. There are some
> ways to receive a shp from OSM-Data, but I think it's a lot more
> comfortable and maybe faster if it's implemented in QGIS as a plugin.
> So my plan is to build a plugin, that transforms OSM-Data to shp (either
> with an existing .osm file or with a given extend) and add a new layer (or
> many layers) to QGIS. If anybody knows that this plugin is already
> developed, please contact me!
> Thanks to everybody again and hopefully some of you will use my plugin in
> the future (even though I know that the plugin is more for private use
> than for commercial).
> Best regards,
