This is great Nathan. Thanks.

One thing I've been mulling over is how we manager parts lists, or, more 
generally, part selection in general.

You mention a spreadsheet. Implicit in this is a collection of parts 
which the OP presumably has evaluated and likes. This is valuable 
information! Why did you chose this red LED over the million others 
available? How much flexibility do I have on this diode, so that I might 
combine quantities with another project which requires a similar, but 
different, diode? What are equivalents at different vendors?
