    202202  a multiple (1-N, N-N) relationship, that should be added to a collection of
    203203  component records.
     204
     205==== Observed file formats and sample data: ====
     206
     207
     208- Outer join has been observed "in the wild", e.g. the
     209  [http://haiti.resource-finder.appspot.com/export?subject_type=hospital Google hospital data for Brazil]
     210  has one level of join with a 1-1 valence, but adds a second level by using...
     211
     212- Lists in cells.
     213
     214- !OpenOffice spreadsheet export saves sheets in one spreadsheet to separate files.
     215  OO spreadsheets were used to load Southern California hospital data into the
     216  Humanity Road database, and these had separate files associated via UUID.
     217  (The load was done by a script that did dal calls and constructed its own
     218  org_site records. The secondary files were not linked OO sheets -- they just
     219  had a column for the associated hospital's UUID.)
     220
     221- Need example of Excel exported CSV files.
     222
     223We should stop here and decide:
     224
     225==== Which of these formats do we expect to encounter and want to support? ====
     226
     227Besides the observed forms, please propose others that we want to support:
     228
     229- (Comments please!)
     230
     231==== Which should we implement in the initial version? ====
     232
     233Yes, we should keep an eye on the general case and make this easy to extend.
     234Consider this to be prototyping (that may happen to have a specific use in mind).
     235
     236- (Pat:) Single file, outer join, allow lists in cells.
     237
     238- (Comments please!)
