I would only ask that, in the interest of making automating the upload
process relatively painless, please, either:

1) Make this _dead easy_ to parse (as the current version is), or

2) When you specify it, create a plug-in routine for perl (if nothing
else) that'll return an array of hashes or whatever with the important
information in it.
