From the responses so far it appears that it is accurate which is encouraging. I've uploaded a script that will allow anyone to use this database if they want it. If you change the values of the constants at the top of the script and run it as a PHP file it will download the zip, create and populate the table and output a simple query. Pretty much everything you would need to get started. Cheers to all who have checked for me.
