Hmmm Im struggling to remember.
Im sure there must have been a reason I did it that way, probably not a good
one tho, it certainly seems a stupid way to do it at first glance.

My guess is that the librarians here thought of it as all one field, and so
i tried to make it look like it was one.

My inclination would be to fix it, and ill sneak the fix over to the library
and see if anyone complains :-) Can always rollback to an earlier cvs
version if they dont like it.
