I can "name = GetSpellInfo(spellID)" but given the name, I can't get the spellID because all the functions that would do so don't exist in Classic.

Skillet (the retail version) is locale agnostic because it uses numeric spellIDs. I had to bastardize Skillet-Classic to use the name as the key instead. This blew any chance of a common set of source files.

I ended up indexing on itemID

    for i = 1, GetNumTradeSkills() do
      local recipe, hdr = GetTradeSkillInfo(i)
      if (recipe and hdr ~= "header") then
        local itemLink = GetTradeSkillItemLink(i)
        local itemID = itemLink:match("item:(%d+)")
        if(itemID) then
But I still have to create a database to map those to spellIDs. Very annoying.
