Hi Julian,

I think the suggestions are doable, though I'll defer to the developer
when we have one working on the system. We need to do at least some
basic updates in order to support the new formats, and I'll see if one
or both of these suggestions can fit into that work. If either turn out
to be a bigger piece of work, then we'll need to hold off until we have
the resources to work on it. Right now, most of our available funds and
developer time are working on format related tools.

-Heather
