Excellent Dan, (and Mike)...

That's a load of work. 
And a major piece.

I'll give it a try and update 
- Hopefully b4 the import exercise.

Cheers, folks - take a look at the downloads page
(http://open-ils.org/downloads.php) near the bottom - "Holdings import
demonstration" - it links to a complete sample of 500 records and
scripts that I whipped together tonight. Following the instructions in
the README, you should be able to successfully import bib records and
holdings from a single set of MARC21XML records.

Many thanks to Mike Rylander for providing the help over the past year
that made this possible.

BTW - any feedback on the demonstration package in the near future
would be greatly appreciated, as it will probably serve as the basis
for the code4lib pre-conference holdings import exercise.
