Dear all,

Apropos nothing much at all, but congruent with some of the discussion
going on in this list at the moment, I've been playing around loading
ports index related data into a RDBMS and querying that to pull out
interesting factoids, or indeed a complete INDEX file.  I didn't start

it might be vaguely useful here and there, so I've stuck a copy on my

I'd be happy to hear from anyone using this, or receive bug reports /
feature requests.
