Looks like Pubmed have taken the basic RIS format and added their own
stuff. We have two options:
* build a general RIS parser that takes stuff like this, and perhaps
creates local namespaced items based on heuritics
* build a specific Medline parser by copying and hacking the current one.
The major challenges
* knowing the complete medline vocabulary (in this area the more you parse
the more tags emerge)
* knowing what to translate each tag into.
It's a really good opportunity for someone to learn some simple python, and
to make an important contribution
