I am definitely interested in modernising memberdb.

At this point I have a proof of concept that:

- Uses the current database schema
- Exposes a REST API via a flask/sqlalchemy
- Provides a UI built on AngularJS and bootstrap

It's very early but looks like it should work.

There's lots still to do though and I'm keen to talk to anyone else
interested in being involved.

I'd also like to thank Stewart Smith for all of his work on the current
memberdb, it's nice to have a sane design to start from!
