I'll have a good look at the data manager approach - a quick glance tells me it
is designed to fetch data and so be able to get fresh data on demand. We'll
need a 3rd party data import process that operates on its own pre-defined
schedule so that each data file gets to have its own update schedule -
weekly/monthly/yearly. So it seems the galaxy API could accomplish this in
talking with the data manager system? I was going to look into the
http://biomaj.genouest.org/ system as another possibility.
But is the data manager approach able to get data in such a way that it can
just place it into a user's history as a linked file or set of files? I.e. the
solution we need has its master databases locally on the server, and will
generate a cached version from the master file - without any networking off of
I'm back from vacation in a week so I'll get to check that out in more detail...

I also think that this a great idea, and as you described it I think it's
feasible as a stand-alone galaxy tool.
Eventually you consider to implement this as a data manager
