oops.  well, i said it was "rough".  yes, the trouble is that currently
there's no way for roadmap to look up geographic places from OSM data --
that only works for data from the US Tiger data.  you need to find OSM
places via "Find by Position", and enter the lat/lon.  that's another one
for the todo list, i guess.

i'll take a look, but having had to create that page in the first place,
i confess i'm not surprised!
