Well the SQL for original manx database (as maintained by Paul) is (or

*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
