I, like Chris said (in another email), have to keep things pretty vague as
far as time-frame.  This is a totally side-project for me, so will take a
back-seat most of the time.  Also, I think there are some very large issues
that we have been ignoring with regard to the underlying table structure,
but these will come out as time moves along.  We can shoot for a deadline,
but I think that "planning" on completion by a certain time is probably a
bit premature before we are a bit further along in the process.
