Nice! I know I said in my OP that I was looking for a shell, not a PHP  
solution. Thanks Harish Narayan and Mike for the shell solutions they  
sent off-list -- really creative (if somewhat hairy). But the fact  
that this data is serialized in a single field, and being able to use  
PHP's unserialize() function to get at it, makes for a much cleaner  
solution. So I'm doing that - popping out to a copy of the script above.

Thanks all,
