Thanks again.

Two last comments on this topic.

My word "taught" implies ideas rather than implementations.

I'll be serving on the EU/NSF WG with Reagan Moore, and will try to find a
non-confrontational way of asking the question.  ("non-confrontational" is
the difficulty.)

Sorry it wasn't more useful.  The implementation of a comprehensive set of
software tools for collection-level archival management is an attempt at a
solution.  As for novelty, I don't know of any commercial software packages
that address precisely the same issues.

Otherwise, I'll let the SDSC publications speak for themselves since I am
not affiliated with their project.   Good luck.
