Dirk suggested we have up to 3 email addresses:
 -- "nearest email address" -- host physically closest to one's abode
 -- "effective email address" -- where one likes to receive his mail
 -- "project email address" -- a unique key, to help matching names 
                               to packages (eliminates the multiple
                               email/name values in the Debian people list).

- I would rank myself near the bottom of the CGI and postgres
   learning curve, so I couldn't do this very fast myself.  I will soon
   be using mSQL however, if that's any help.
+ I'd be happy to help in some other way.
