Searching for usable libosm

We got "address" points for 10% of Czech Republic (and can actually use them), which is cool. I'd like to use them to automatically name residential streets that miss names. (If there are many address points with same streetname along unnamed way, just copy that name to the name of street.)

But that means that I'll need to operate on OSM data, and I prefer not to parse XML by hand etc. libosm in svn (applications/lib/libosm) looks like tool to use, unfortunately it is outdated -- only knows about v 0.3 API.
Is there better library to use? Or some application that can be easily modified?
