Thanks, I will do that. Ultimately, I may do the custom filtering 
directly in splitter or osmosis, whichever works better for splitting 
the tiles for mkgmap.

Does the osm.pbf format make Osmosis a more feasible option now? Does 
anyone use Osmosis for splitting rectangular tiles for mkgmap? If so, 
with which options?

You seem to have. Something (mailing list software or your MUA) may 
still be destroying the space-stuffing of my text/plain; format=flowed 
messages, but I guess we can live with that. :-)
