Remove huge data files from the repository

There are huge xml osm data file in the repository.

E.g. test/map.osm (17.3 MB)

These files will never change and shouldn't be part of the repository. The testcase runner should download them once from our server when the test runs for the first time.

Any objections?

In this case compressing it with bzip2 -9 reduce its size to 1.6 MB when fetching it from repository. But this also means that the compressed distibution tarball isn't affected by this.

The test cases should be self contained. The question here is whether to have a test case for big file included or not?

Another idea is to generate the huge test data on demand. Then we only need to include small test data sets.
