How about using a cvs repository? The problem would be of course then
_when_ to make a check-in. Perhaps a diff with the current epg.data
and the latest check-out would be made and if it differs, a new
check-in would be made...
EPG data repository would be for debugging anyway, so I do not really
know about user interfacing.
