Rob, everyone, thanks for the input.  I'm definitely going to look at the
dev time required for this db port.  It shouldn't be too bad; I can retain
the same function names but just rework the actual code to interface with
the db instead of the arrays.  Plus I can use getrows! ;)

Thanks again, I owe a tip!
