Hi - it's easier for others to reply if you set your linewrap below 70.

I'm not sure, but I think there will be problems indexing Koha's MARC
directly because it won't give all the holdings and so on.  It can
probably be made to work, but I think I'd try some sort of
cross-search like using openSearch first, which should already have
some support in Koha 3.0-beta.

You may also find it more useful to ask the koha-devel list if you
need to extend koha or get into its internals.  Details on www.koha.org
