the external table syntax would have to be modified as well as perhaps even
a new metadata item to track the plug-ins similar to how the UDF's are
Then the XML freaks could write theirs, the delimited ASCII folks plug in
theirs, the ACCESS people plug in theirs, etc.
Make it generic so that we can just "plug-in" whatever data types we want.
