As another concept, how about a custom page on the Wiki, editable only
by an anointed few (you, me, Diego, and Roberto for starters), that
contains information formatted in a particular manner (like CSV). Then
someone writes a custom script that retrieves the data via HTTP and
looks for the desired information. If HTTP is undesirable, MediaWiki
probably allows for all kinds of download modes. We just need to examine
the Wiki documentation (oh dear).
