Merging back can happen when I am sure that there is no harm to the XML 
reader.  If you don't have the osmprotobuf.jar then it just won't even 
recognise the binary format.

If you do want to try it out I have the jar files I used at
http://files.mkgmap.org.uk/.  I should also mention that currently the 
binary file must end in .bin - that will probably change.

I do need to think about how to package this all up, but I won't do much 
until the jar file name is finalised. Until the splitter support is 
ready and binary downloads are available it is not going to be that 
useful anyway.
