I was hoping that we could provide (share within the GNUmed community) 
conversions in such a way as to not have to require each praxis to manually 
link each of their test_types to various conversion rows.

It is the reason why (in one of my subsequent posts) I wondered about the 
possibility of using something more general than a LOINC, like an analyte. 
Ideally we would have something like the equivalent of a drug INN for test 
substrates (analytes).
