Thanks.  I'm interested in how you will manage your plug-in data when WP is 
upgraded.  For example, when a user upgrades from 2.1.3 to 2.2 (deactivating 
your plug-in in the process), what happens to the data in the plug-in specific 
table(s)?  I've read about the dbdelta function (thanks Jamie) 
http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_Tables_with_Plugins but that addresses 
upgrades to the plug-in table schema.  What happens when WP is upgraded to a new 
db schema?  Will plug-in specicific table data be persevered?  Or will the 
tables need to be exported and imported with phpMyAdmin after the upgrade?  Or 
would you simply script that process?
