I'm a big +1 with Friedrich here. I actually think even our own
loaders should switch to producing our 'OpenSpending data' format and
we then load that in a standard way (the great benefit with this is we
now have a nice 'standalone' version of the data to redistribute to
others, to register on ckan.net etc).
