Thanks again for the feedback, folks.  I think what I'm going to do is 
start from ground level with the PEAR MDB2 project 
(http://pear.php.net/package/MDB2 -- an "abstraction layer" that works 
with 8 different databases, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite) and 
try to produce output that can be styled with pagelist templates... and 
ideally that can fool both pagelists and FASTData into treating database 
records as pages.  We'll see!  I'm sure I'll be back to ask for help at 
regular intervals.  ;-)  --Ben
