Metadata Madness Continued

Today, I got the code for the metadata capture executing through tests. I also re-learned a few things.

- Quick little stubs for imitating real services are neither quick nor little, but are always necessary if data is to be provided and you want to test your structures and plans.

- Use the types your given. Creating new types because they seem a bit clearer in your mind means you have to convert them.

- Draw things out. While what you code will rarely look like what you ended up drawing... it gets that tossable first attempt out of the way without having to do a lot of SVN adjustment.

Tomorrow, I try and show the metadata in the grid-viewer pane, and then I try and replicate data.
