tyring the sql, its not actually super slow, just a couple of seconds.

Should we think about the api more, or just let it evolve? I had assumed
a more atomic set of functions and then doing the convenience of getting
all the data in one lump (eg one call to get lines and names, stuff like
that) later...

The other reason is that we're not the only ones using the api...

Anyway, cool stuff! Now I have to go move house...

have fun,
