Last year at Brainshare, I'd gone to a ZEN 6.5 inventory session and I
think the product manage of the inventory side was there.

Anway, they claimed that you could use like over 100 canned reports, and
that if you needed to make your own, you could use like the inventory
query section and save it as a "plugin" or something into ConsoleOne so
that it would now show up as a canned report?

As opposed to the current 4.01x version that you have to save it as a
..exp file and then re-run the query and get a nasty ol' .CSV file.
