Currently, it doesn't overlap with anything in DMS. I've put some
design work into a SQL database for loading the metadata into for faster
indexing, but I think that's sort of orthogonal to this.
Anyway, it'd probably not be hard to _use_ DMS to generate this index
file. After all, the whole point of building a system with a remote API
ability was to be able to script up stuff like this. ;-)

Probably so. Lemme know what to do to help.
