Cool, in the sense that I am not crazy....

I will keep an eye out for your changes.

I wonder if it wouldn't be easier to track state-by-state loader scripts as
text; I tried looking at the sql functions and data to make this and my eyes
crossed just because of the quotes of quotes of quotes...  With bash/ sh there
are a lot of standard ENVARS that could be used (like TMP, HOME, etc), plus any
of the standard Postgres ENVARS.

Heck yes -- Postgis + geocoder + raster is one of the poster children of the new
era.  I just want to do my little part....
