Just a comment: would it be possible to move this discussion to
ckan-discuss. support at ckan.org is usually reserved for technical
support for the CKAN software :-) (Plus this is an interesting thread
that others would benefit from seeing).
If you are happy to move it there would you mind resending your
original email and then this follow up ...
