The .sql file was from months ago.  I assume it was produced when Martin
(or someone else?) was doing a test port of Drupal to a new server VM.  I
don't see any evidence in crontab that there is any backups being produced
of mysql.  All the backup related stuff I vaguely recall from the distant
past  seems to be gone.

I will note that with the service provider directory working again I'm not
personally very excited about an overhaul.  We do however need to get
Drupal migrated to a new system - hopefully with a newer versions of
Drupal.  Getting that migration done would be (IMHO) much higher priority
than reworking existing capabilities.  Amoung other things it will get us
out from under a $7500/year server contract with Peer1.
