Alright, this makes it easier! I will start programming as soon as 
possible and will keep the mailing list up-to-date with any big goals.

I have one more question though, if we allow the reader to be able to 
easily choose the mapping of columns and fields of the data in his database,
would there also be such a need for the standalone application?
In my opinion the standalone application should be able to connect to a
user-configurable database and be compatible with the default database loaders
and nothing more. What are your thoughts?
