Hey, Chris,

  Thanks for the info.  It's Fort-Knox worth of knowledge for me!
Two things:

1)  I can't find the WebDB module... do you mean WebPG?  Could you post
the link to that, if it isn't:

2)  I'm no expert, and want to help.  I _/use/_ php and postgresql.  I do
very simple coding.  Are bug reports enough from me?
