Hi All!
    I'm needing to create a bunch of new mwmbers in an empty CMF site,
from a tab-separated text file (access export). I've got the new fields
set up in portal_memberdata, and i'm working on changing the join and
personalize fields for later additions, but I have one big batch to add
from this file.
    Parsing the file shouldn't be *too* hard (I'm a python newbie); if
anyone wants to spell it out, that would be fine, though :) The thing I
really need help with is the syntax for creating a new member, complete
with member folder and lots of extra metadata, etc.. (Having emails sent
with passwords to each member as they are imported would be a great bonus!)
    Any and all suggestions, snippets, and solutions welcome! TIA
