I agree that a GUI batch loader would be very helpful.  However, several 
libraries need to batch load these patrons on a daily basis, since students may 
start programs at various times throughout the semester.  So the nightly cron 
job script approach is pretty important for these cases, and I think it would 
be nice if there were a more standard way in Evergreen to do that particular 

I'm wondering if we might consider including a very general, flexible patron 
batch import/update script in the support-scripts directory.
