Thanks so much, guys.  We really do appreciate all the hard work you do on
this software that you provide us free.  We're just so excited about it that
we keep asking for things.

You are my list of places to donate to in the months that I have a little
extra.

Cindy

At the moment there's no type field in the database. We're going to put this
in when we come up with an aggreed upon list of standard types. We'll also
have to figure out exactly how these types will be used and how to implement
all this without breaking the existing databases.
