Thanks. I'm aware of PyOsmium, which appears to work on Windows but not
without installing a number of additional packages related to the
libosmium. I may go that route in the absence of easier alternatives, but
installation of libosmium doesn't seem very straightforward on Windows. Or
perhaps the problem is the documentation doesn't provide much information
on how to install on Windows short of building from source, which is a
nonstarter for most users. What I'm really hoping for is an isolated Python
solution that can be installed via a simple pip command.

Have I misunderstood something about PyOsmium and libosmium?
