Well, imo Distella already does everything it _needs_ to do.  I'm sure the
current version will still survive on the net here and there if not on Mr.
Colbert's (Bob's?  what's the convention for referring to people who are on
listserv?  I always want to use first names, and can never figure if that's
right for someone you've never met ;) site itself.

Having html output would be right helpful if it had hyperlinks for all the
BNE's and JMP's.  It's bad enough choosing which snippets to send to the
list when you have trouble; this new distella could make a 4k game
"browsable".  I'm just concerned for people who use mail handlers that
don't know html code.

Now if you can convince Mr. Bob ;^) to finish "KtP" before embarking on
this distella/dasm project, I'm all for it!
