You could however use the db as is and then write a script that does everything you're talking about. It's a simple db, it doesn't care how you use it or from where. :-)

Thank you very much for your reply.
I have to admit I don't get how I could use the db "as-is". Could you point me to the code in GAB that uses the db so I can see how the blobs are taken out of the db? Or any other general pointer as to how I would go about doing that? Thank you very much.

Edit: I tried to do this with 
Code:
import sqlite3
import zlib

db = sqlite3.connect('gab_kraken.db')
rows = db.execute('select * from results')

but python tries to convert to text and fails horribly:
Code:
sqlite3.OperationalError: Could not decode to UTF-8 column 'strat' with text '�'
google did not turn up anything useful...
