fyi Barcelona OpenStreetMap data is already sucked in by install_osm.sh,
and I plan to change that to download the latest data using Xapi* so we
always are using the freshest version of the data as possible. Changing
that to other cities is as easy as changing the lat/lon bounding box.

Users can (via 1,2,3 tutorial) then run "osm2pgsql" to create a PostGIS
database for other PG using tutorials. It's pretty small really so we
could do this for them, but then they wouldn't learn how to do it :)
