I could have sworn we were already doing that, but I guess not.
I've just added a symlink which creates a file called

which other scripts and docs can use in future as a stable
filename. For the upcoming release though I wouldn't risk
touching otherwise functioning scripts at this point. But any
quickstarts using the filename might get started. AFAICT
that's just OSM's own one & I've just updated it.
