My reason for using a stronger word (even though enlist apparently calls
up the wron connotaions) is that once you've registered (enlisted,
enrolled) a library into the database, it'll stay there for all database
operations as long the file still exists.  There's an implicit contract
that the "registration" stays valid for the combined lifetime of the
file and the database.  Since you cannot (yet) choose a different
database, that requires a bit of coordination.


Regards,
Achim.
