I am now considering this same topic that was raised on this list a 
year ago.  I'm not looking to make a Z39.50 resource available as 
OAI, I'm wondering if I can additionally expose an existing OAI data 
provider using Z39.50 or SRU.  It's one of many ideas we're bouncing 
around for setting up a metasearch target for a particular collection.
