Thanks Stefan, and Matthias for the replies and information.
Matthias, if you could put that script somewhere for download, that would be much appreciated!  

I will check out both solutions referenced to see how they could fit into our ecosystem.

Hi Josh

I write a little perl script, that makes sql statments for that.
