Hi Chris,

At the risk of sounding terribly ignorant about a codebase I'm meant
to be maintaining, where is this "resource_id" field of which you
speak. I've just had a poke around and every JSON/CSV export I can
find which refers to entries gives an "_id" field, the one I described
earlier. Grepping the entire source code for "resource_id" also throws
up no hits, implying to me that any "resource_id" must be a
dataset-specific thing.

If you can provide me with any URLs that emit "resource_id" and not
"_id", I'll be happy to look into this.
