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 
the server.  

I'm back from vacation in a week so I'll get to check that out in more detail...

Cheers,

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 
(https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Tools/DataManagers) ?
