I'm working on a Bib database using MySQL as back end, and being able to 
import data directly from XML files from pubmeb (Biology database, 
include most of the biology related articles), the aim is to keep as 
much info as possible, and eventually being able to attach electronic 
reprints to each record.

So far, I'm far from a release, but if any body is interested in alpha 
testing, send me a mail.


PS: to Michael, so far I've not included any code for the interface with 
TexShop... I'd be interested in the source of your program to see how 
you do it, and if you agree to reuse your code.
