Well, first I need the fodder.  Does anyone know if the archives exist in a
non-html form -- like in an mbox format, or as plaintext?

The more I've thought about this, the more I've thought about 
cross-referencing and all that -- basically, the Xanadu fantasy.  Since
replies are so often quoted, but at the same time are usually 
superfluous when reading through archives...

But that's okay, I'll just fudge it by hand.  Anyway, I'd like to start
as soon as I get the raw information.
