Chris -

Let me put it this way: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!  You don't know
what a pleasure it is to burst out of this wretched slogging and get back to
actually building something!  (Actually, I expect you DO know what a
pleasure it is.)

See the final battle in this war story, below.

Thank you so much for your patience and skill.

- Ken

As well you shouldn't!  :-S

It turns out that I had discovered the MySQLdb folder in my file browser,
and in my enthusiasm had just grabbed that, without looking for the plain
old files - and without noticing your careful stipulation "everything
(folders and files)".

Done, and all is well!
