Yeah, Joe -- you're right about the maintenance. I guess it all boils down
to how often these will be updated. In my case, actually, the WMF
method is the best choice because I need to save static versions of
everything. Having ANYTHING auto-update would be real trouble!

I must say, though, that re-saving and re-inserting takes only a second or
two -- not enough to make or break anyone's schedule... It's still
something to think about.
