    No problem.  All of my values are consistent as of now, so it's not a
    big issue.

Ok, but still it would be desirable to define your boolean type so you
can use integrity checks.
    Unrelated question.  What is the recommended way of taking recfmt's
    output and dividing it up on a one-record-per-file basis?  I ask
    because I have a simple markdown template that I can use recfmt to
    turn my records into an easy to display format for my mobile phone
    text editor.  It would be convenient if I could easily dump my
    recutils db into a bunch of files in a Dropbox folder that my phone
    can access.  As it stands now, I have one big file with all of the
    records in it.  I toyed around with using csplit to divide up the
    file, but was curious to know if there were any other suggestions.
That is a good idea, to add a switch to recfmt in order to split the
output in several files.

At the moment you will have to use an external program to do the
splitting, such as csplit from coreutils.
