If you encrypt it with my GPG key and put it up for
download that'd be easiest for me.

Names and addresses should suffice, I suppose. Also,
anything one would store in demographics.ext_id would need
to be de-identified.
I have on occasions *shuffled* name parts and address parts
such that no single part stays identical to the source. That
way I didn't have to make up any data.

You mean like this ?
select count(*) from clin.encounter where fk_patient = X;
select count(*) from clin.episode where fk_patient = X;
select count(*) from clin.v_pat_items where fk_patient = X;
select count(*) from blobs.doc_med where fk_patient = X;
Not bad an idea but the count()s will eat quite some time.
It should be accessible on-demand, though.
