Brilliant ! We did discuss this before as a local in-house
often-used intermediate drug list but it never occurred to me

a virtue. (hint, hint: miniproject: write a check the [yet to
be written] external integrity check demon to look for stale
drug database links on cache entries).

Here's a request for submissions on what the intermediate drug
data tables, eg. the "minimal drug dataset", must look like ...
