Traveller Tracker - Trade Goods

I pulled in a previous version set of trade goods: book 2 goods list (a d66 list) and the T5 random goods table by trade codes. Oddly one is an XML file, the other CSV.  What I will do is update the seed to add those to the DB if not already added.  The seed function only adds things if they don't exist, the theory being that once you do have it installed, you don't want to overwrite anything anyone has added.  The options section will probably have a function to reset all back to the initial data. Probably.

Now I still have to figure out how to generate the goods available based on versions. I've stubbed out the methods based on version, and they all return a list of cargos (although I may have to make some changes to include tons, codes and other odds and ends. The cargo table itself does not include tons, just what the cargo is; another table will hold the mods by version for buy/sell.  I am making this far more complex than necessary...

I may move the Traveller versions to be an enumeration instead, but I am thinking the trade code modifiers may get added in there somehow as well.
