Words like "themeable" send shudders up the spines of people like
Jeff and me. (And not just because they're NOT REAL WORDS.)

Those aren't, I don't think, the features you should be touting,
since the mailing list would be both those things if we had
someone's mbox sorted through. Ahem.

I *really* hate web forums. So if you ask a question there and not
on the list, you'll never see a response from me. That's a totally
personal opinion, though.

We have these sections on the existing website. Having them be
updateable by the community, not just people with shell access on
mct's machines, sounds like a good idea.
