probably of some interest to others out there I'm posting it.)

Yes.  In fact my masters thesis was on exactly this problem and involved
the creation of such a database.  The current database is fairly small and
a significant amount of interface work need to be done to really make it
usable, but the basic concepts are there.  You can check out both my thesis
and the program on my web page (  The
thesis includes a discussion of some of the other existing tools that could
be used for this task.  I am very interested in finding people interesting
in helping to my the existing system better.
