Hi all,

Two notes related to this discussion:

1) I filed a bug in launchpad to represent the desire for a
standardized support script for patron loading and updating:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1786524
2) Based on Martha Driscoll's scripts, I made some modifications to
the example script in the documentation to allow for updating existing
patron records.  The updated script should appear here next time the
docs are regenerated (within 24 hours):
http://docs.evergreen-ils.org/3.1/_creating_an_sql_script_for_importing_patrons.html

Looking forward to further discussion of this desired functionality.
