I am not a dak hacker, nor an ftpteam or wanna-build guy.  That being
said, it looks like a lot of the information you store and the functions
for comparison look an awful lot like the stuff dak currently has.  Does
it make sense to consolidate, and expand dak to handle the extra things
you need it to do?  It could presumably go in a seperate schema with
grants and so on so that permissions can be kept sensible - all of this
would need to be worked out with the ftpteam people.  It's just that I
get sad every time I see needless duplication of information in
databases :)
