  I am not sure if an API is sufficent. I'd like to have a copy of the
  source data as well as of the data and scripts that are used to
  produce the output data. Anybody who will join my line of work
  will get these via rsync.

  There is discussion, not much on the American Scientist Open Access
  Forum. I am aware of

  but there may be others.

  In general, an "OAI-PHM data users", polite for "OAI-PMH data
  exegetes" list is probably a good idea. I'd be happy to run it, but
  I don't want to be the only member.
