This could be done with an ELSA connector (I know, I'm referring to
ELSA, shocker!) that wrote directly to the database.  ELSA includes a
connector for CIF that does just that and could be easily edited to
become a custom input connector.  If you're interested, let me know,
and I'll write it for you.
