Thanks for that!!
I'd like to publically note that Dave is the guy who got me into
this scene in the first place - we used to correspond on and off
the old comp.music newsgroup around 1994, and it was an early
version of Dave's page that first convinced me to check out Linux.

Something like that, but not a first step. Once I've got a working 
beta of the system, I'll dump in a few apps and let people kick the tires
a bit. When I'm confident that the system is up to the task,
I'll write some scripts to dump in as much as possible of your 
existing data (and report anything it can't parse, so I can get the
rest by hand).

Reformed. I don't touch the Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister
anymore. ;-)
I'm now a pythonista.
