At some point, it would be nice if a person maintain a web site that keep
tabs on all the different people that have documents or programs to
share.  Maybe even a FAQ indicating, among other things, the longstanding
disagreements.  Together, we've only got 1200 messages in two mailing
lists, so I think things aren't so out of control.

On a related note, I've noticed some folks are not particularly taken
with this notion of a persistent store.  Any interest in splitting
to another list?
