Anyone with a little spare time that can help with programming should
step up to that challenge! I know a bit about Perl, but not enough to
go digging into the guts of the Major. I can, and have, done something

call for it (like a HTML version).

step forward, and should quickly become the standard if people will
offload Jason a bit. Anyone interested?
