Indeed. As negative as I sounded in my first message, I am not
entirely anti-import. But I do maintain a very high bar for what I
consider a "good" import. Typically this means spending many hours on
it with heavy manual inspection.

I would be happy to take, for example, a Kansas extract of this data
and import it myself. My mapping OCD may even require that I trace
outlines instead of simply importing points. Crap. I was at the
pharmacy earlier today. Should have asked if they make a cream for
that.
