This issue has been discussed a little bit a few years ago, but not
really on what I would like to do.
I would like to decode surface data (synop, metar, buoys, ship) into a
MySQL database, directly through pqact.conf in realtime, and as well
store the raw messages.
I would also like to scour the data (as in the scour disk utility) to
keep only the past week of data.
My main questions resides in what kind of actions (PIPE, FILE, etc)
should be used in pqact, and if somebody did already something like
this (so that I do not reinvent the wheel).
