This was the aim... and something I was supposed to have done months ago.
Life intervenes at the most unfortunate moments.
Sadly most of the slash-like thingies (especially slash itself) are big
hunks of really, really grotesque code. I decided some time ago to write a
very simple application myself, but have yet to spend the time I want to on
I asked if anyone was interested in helping some time ago, and got little
response. So... I'll ask again seeing that it's come up! :D As always,
please spam me with your ideas... but preferably code or commitment. :)

I think the comparative simplicity of an HTML page and CVS would be better.
Plus, a hell of a lot more readable! :)
