It is a bit of a grab bag of programs. Some of them might be useful on their
own but mostly they are examples for libosmium use, not much use as they are
but good as a starting point for somebodys own development efforts. Maybe I
should put the stuff thats not usable on its own into the libosmium examples
directory and only leave the stuff thats usable on its own.

Lets leave osmium-contrib alone for the time being and concentrate on the
other packages. Once they have settled, I'll have a look again.
