Actually, in picking through the Master device, I noticed that it contains
three tables: master, pub and model. None of these seem to have anything to
do with Emerald, yet several messages in the list archives mention that the
data in Emerald is useless as a backup unless the Emerald table structures
(which are supposedly stored in master) are available as well.

Any ideas?
