http://auric.debian.org/~robbe/tmp has 8800+ files and doesn't
include non-us, looks like. 1.7M of data in those files.
Individual files or one big file are ok with cable/adsl but
probably not much fun with dialup.
I doubt if there will be support for a cgi script. There might
already have been definitive word on all this. The mailing lists
have dried up here for the last few hours.
