Greetings:

I would also like to see some of these kinds of records being able to be sourced properly.  I also have many of these kinds of sources that are sitting around...

Sincerely yours,
Rob G. Healey

I am glad to see this work progressing.  Can we generalize it?  Build
a framework for other types of sources?  Eventually I'd like to cover
