It wouldn't be that difficult to write a program to create
MA/SA entries from a users file. However, as I noted above, there
is SO LITTLE data in the users file, that you would need to go back
to each user and update the information manually anyways. Unless
you have more information somewhere to make an import more meaningful,
I don't know much else to recommend.
