I think we can get some movement on this next week.

The main point I think is to show some examples.  We have a couple of  
good identification examples, and I can whip one up that gives one  
example of how to get raw data.

We can pull this into the wiki.  I'd like to get some movement from  
the greasemonkey people too for a MF section on their wiki.   
Greasemonkey people should just flock to MF.
