Yes, of all the things OKFN could organise/fund that is the one I'm
most interested in.

Perhaps somehow include in CKAN structural information as to the
format of the data - even procedural stuff for extracting it from the
remote site. And create the amazing modern visualising equivalent of a
spreadsheet, that lets people do ace stuff with it.

I don't know how generic this can be - but swivel indicates more so
than is at first apparent.
