Hey John,
   Thanks!!!!  If you are interested in having it as a part of
the argus release, only two things.  We'll need to package it
as a tar file, which will be in the contrib directory with
you as the contact for fixes etc...., and it will have to be
released under the GNU license.  If you're cool with that,
then we'll add it to the argus-clients release when you're

   I'm sure that most can imagine how having a schema and
import/export/query tools can really help using argus data,
especially for Java and Perl/Python users, but can you
describe how its helped you in developing your application(s)?

Hope all is very well!!!
