Trivial, but I'm waiting for the gatekeepers to say 'do this work and  
we'll put it in', because I have to move it to HEAD, which given  
testing etc is some work, and then I'd want to get it as clean as  
possible, commented etc.

I'm looking for feedback on the canonical/derived containment issue,  
the idea of having a defined directory for _externals to store data,  
and the idea of putting said directory/ies into the dbinfo call (and  
hence also each _external request).

I'm happy to do the work required, but given that I've published a  
proof of concept, I'd rather not do more work until I know it's worth
