Heh, sorry Alf, I'd forgotten you were already over here.

Bear in mind I haven't looked inside Piggy Bank or played with
Greasemonkey (soon!), but I wonder if something like your script could
act as a Piggy Bank Lite. No need to install all the client-side Java
stuff, but the what the script discovers could be passed to a
(possibly 3rd party) server-side personal/shared datastore, a la
Semantic Bank.
