Hmm, sorry Joshua, I have not answered all your questions. That comes 
from asking to many questions in the one thread (which I did !).

Yep, the install file is there. No idea of why I could not see it. 
Honestly, no idea ! But I was having some build problems, cannot 
remember the details (Christmas...) so will have another look when I get 
the time.

Yes, while the spec has changed a little, its not relevant to our use.

Hmm, yes, pretty sure the "generator='JOSM'" was a direct lift from 
Markus's original. I do feed the output to JOSM (and expect Markus did 
too) but I don't think its necessary. Will have a play, have some data 
to upload anyway.
