[clug] Aust. Postcode mapping data

The openstreetmap-au list had some talk about an ok, unencumbered source 
of postcode data, maybe the ABS, and the import of that into OSM, a few 
months ago.  I unsub'd about then. List archives 
http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk-au/ appear to have lots of 
mentions of "postcode".  The main map also has some dotted lines now 
which might be postcode boundaries, but I don't think the actual 
postcode value is tagged in the relation, at least for the bit I glanced 

Pretty sure there are some active OSMers on the clug list too, who may 
know more.
