I'm all for that, because I think the import process also has the
potential risk of breaking something.
Importing it once into pm-utils, then carefully checking if the
imported database looks sane,  and adding/modifying enties looks like
a much more robust solution to me.

I would actually prefer, if we just shipped the quirks within the
pm-utils tarball.
Looking at the git branch, it looks like Victor wants to keep them in
a separate tarball, even if they are in the same git repo.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
