I wish we could have something like a list of all the Baha'i Texts (like the Leiden List) linked with official translations and provisionals and sources and such.

It's coming! Seriously -- there's a prototype Leiden List already in the database. I think that within a year we'll have unique item IDs for all the Writings, correlated with their location in the Baha'i Library and crossreferences. We might be importing William Collins' comprehensive Bibliography of English-Language Works on the Baha'i Faith, which will be a significant first step toward such a list.

This is what I tried to do with etc., but it turned out to be impractical until databases came along. Now it's doable, and we will.
