This sounds interesting. Is it possible that you checked it
into one of the branches ? I cannot see it in HEAD.

The rel-0-x-patches branches are intended for bug fixes
only. There's two places where you could usefully check in
your code:

- create a dedicated branch (say "schemascan2" or "sjtan")
  for it off any revision you like

- check it into the test_area/sjtan/ (as you did) but in the
  HEAD branch, that way your valuable work will have much more
  visibility !

That sounds very useful. I imagine the same thing with
German xDT files: The user generates a complete xDT export
of all patient data at one point. This gigantic file is then
parsed, displayed and partially imported/pruned of the
imported data when the user hits "import xDT for this
patient" in the GNUmed GUI. On-demand import, so to speak.
