It's one of the options I hope to look at but my main idea was to get
a tool that could do the extraction working and make it available to
anyone who wants to provide data. Anyone with a mailing list or
address book is a potential data source - I just hope to make it easy
for them to submit it.
I just need some test data that I didn't write to make sure I'm not
making silly assumptions! :-)
