Well the SQL for original manx database (as maintained by Paul) is (or 
was available) and something is available in the codeplex download that 
*might* be the current (or near-current) manx database.

You could turn that into links but you'd just have 

I guess the data would be useful for programmatically checking whether a 
given manual is known to manx. At that point though I think the best 
thing to do would be to get the data into manx. Manx feels like the 
right tool for finding manuals.
