You might be better to parse the VDR format from SCAN rather than the 
tzap.  It has more fields

To be honest though, if you are comfortable enough writing some C to 
change the output of scan then I think you could probably implement an 
import routine for the backend setup program. It's not too hard, just 
needs some time to sit down and finish a parser.

Good luck.  Looks nice
