The main trouble with this approach is that I need some way to have
the python/config file available at the 'home' end of this as well as
at the 'remote' end.  I guess I could write a copy of the file into
the database but then I have the editing issue again, changing it
becomes messy.  If it's not in the database then how do I 'tie' it to
the data?
