Dear Eric, Bastien and John,

Thanks for references to recutils and org-ql. These are very interesting,
and I am looking at those.

A recutils database with a possibility of selecting, inserting and updating
records from org is one possibility.

Let me play around with these tools a bit and see what they are like.

Thanks again,
