there is something already on osm to do this:
which gets tiles by a bounding box
it should be pretty easy to extend by producing a table with a list of
names (e.g. oslo, noway) that feeds a set of lat/lon to the script
place llon rlon tlat blat
norway 2.5 3.2 62.2 58.4
oslo 2.75 2.82 59.91 59.75
# perl get.pl oslo
and it parses the place, sends the coords to get.pl and downloads what you need
of course, the script could be easily modfied to use other map
services that serve tiles with a similar name format
