Incidentally, does this list have a 'Reply-To' header set?  When I  
tried to 'reply' or 'reply all', it went to Phaylon but not the list.

Ok, good.  I know I'm morning-stupid right now (can't get the  
caffeine to kick in, damnit), so I'm glad this wasn't bogus.

You mean the Loader plugin?  I was deliberately positioning it as a  
script...it feels like more of a gain that way.  If it is a plugin,  
you can't rely on it working across DBs which means you will need to  
give up portability or write the code yourself anyway.  If it is a  
script then you (may) lack portability but, when you want to go to a  
new platform, you just rerun the script (*) and tell it to target the  
results at a new DB.

(*) Obviously, you would need to have a version of the schema  
instantiated in a DB that supported discovery, in order for the  
script to have something to work from.

Hey, the whole point of the page was to be a place for discussion of  
hoped-for features.  Your point sounds like a good addition to me.
