This sounds good.  My suggestion would be to write the CLF (modified as
I proposed in an earlier mail) and then allow the add-on fields to be
chosen in the config.  (More config file bloat...)

On the topic of config files, I agree that there needs to be an inteface
to the configs developed.  I'm on a perl high right now.... I could see
a perl program using the Tk extensions for this.... :-)
