Hi Philip,

Maybe I'm wrong here, but as far as I'm aware, the current monument
database is actually being scraped each night from the wikipedia lists. So
basically it is a mirror of the lists with a lag up to 24 hours (if
toolserver works etc). But maybe we're talking about different databases?
Probably it would be easiest to just use one way or another the Monument
Database we're running, rather than reinventing the wheel.
