I could have overlooked something.  Could you please send me the
logfile?  (If you have one that is already published which we could
use for regression testing, even better.)

Does xia2 also extract something of this info automatically, e.g. for
REMARK 200 records?  If Graeme has already done some of the work I
should just figure out how to use that instead of writing yet another
logfile parser - although I guess people use XDS manually too.

No, the assumption is that these are the same - this might seem a
little unreasonable, but as a reader or reviewer I would want to know
what was the mean I/sigma for the reflections *actually used in

I could probably find a place to fit this in, although this is the
kind of information that I think is best put in the Methods section
(which Phenix still won't write for you - yet).
