I appreciate that.  It's good to hear that we're not headed in _completely_ the
wrong direction.

I'm pretty sure that this will become database driven shortly.  Les Richardson
plans to work something up in the next few weeks, I think.  When it's all said
and done, I hope we can have some canned database queries that duplicate the
current indices in what they return, along with a more general search form that
would allow the user to create on-the-fly filters (like, show all records where
category=physics and license!=GPL, for example).

I don't know that we'll need to call on you for SEUL; Roger can contact you about
that if he feels the need.  However, it's a generous offer, which I heartily
recommend to anyone else on this list who could use these services!
