Sounds good to me, all I'm saying is that until this is implemented,
I'm still in business.

I'd imagine my wanting access to the `member' addresses from another
application isn't all that uncommon.  Mine just happens to be written
in Python which made this easy.  It might be nice to optionally be
able to "separate" attributes like `member', and store them along
side in a more universal format like text or DBM, rather than keeping
them locked up inside config.pck where non-Python apps have a hard
time getting at them.

Perhaps this is just what you are suggesting.  :-)
