"Can be used" and "is designed to do when used as directed" has already been dealt with and dismissed as a separate case from the one under consideration.

While this could be embedded into other mechanisms (cgi, procmail, etc.), it's not packaged or designed specifically for this. Peace. -- Karsten M.
