I'm sortof surprised if they let that out. I would assume that would be 
considered private information that they would be obliged to destroy, 
and definitely not just let anyone else get access to.

It reminds me of the situation with the dumps of disks from AI.MIT.EDU 
and others, that had problems just because of this for many years until 
someone could vet them.
