Except that Robert is using both digest and archive2.pl, so both archive
directories must exist the way he has things configured. Robert, don't
confuse list archives (maintained by archive2.pl and queried by 'get'
and 'index' commands) with digest "archives" (created and used by
digest, but are only temporary). They aren't the same thing and you
shouldn't be using the same directory for both.
