[Loadstone] Problem using the Python version of Loadstonetools on Gentoo Linux

Hi John,
This looks like there's probably a difference between your version of python 
and the one the script was written for. The script was probably written for 
version 2.x so something must have changed with later python versions. I'm 
not exactly sure how to fix the script but you shouldn't need it anyway.
All the openstreetmap data is now part of the loadstone point share so you 
should use that rather than obtaining data from openstreetmap and trying to 
convert it to loadstone format. If you still need the offline tools for some 
reason then you may have to google a bit and do some code hacking to get it 
to work with your python version. Good luck.
