I'm trying to create the endpoints as flat files which are parsed when needed rater than the current re-parsing the latters to create the endpoint to parse for other purposes, so was I looking into OFS as per suggestion on the open literature list in November. 

I suppose for now, it would be easiest to create a file store using OFS and create / push the files into it since the endpoints are relatively small at the moment (assuming that the directory has write access but I can always enter a stream into the store if I've read the documentation correctly? so that shouldn't be an issue).

It was in the setup.py file in the try: catch: loop.
