Sorry for taking so long; some personal issues, combined with important
work, delayed me.

I've stashed discover 2.0.2- and discover-data 2.2003.02.05-2
packages in http://hackers.progeny.com/~licquia/discover/.  Again,
please don't upload these or otherwise give them "official" status.


 - Beginnings of removing the hard dependency on curl.  All curl
interaction has been isolated to one function, making it easy to replace
that function under certain circumstances.  (If anyone were to
contribute an alternate _discover_load_url function, I wouldn't object.)

 - discover.conf is now installed into discover-udeb.

 - discover-data-udeb now has a complete copy of the discover 2 data.

The two things I can think of that would be really nice:

 - An alternate _discover_load_url.

 - Reduction of the discover 2 data.  What kinds of data would you want
included or excluded?
