I can see their point, but if they don't want people to view it, they shouldn't
be putting comics online ;) I noticed in the upstream distribution they have
certain comics in a 'disabled' directory - perhaps these are touchy comics.
I'm fairly sure that the authors of strips like Userfriendly or Sluggy
freelance wouldn't mind, but for now I guess I won't release a package of it.
There's also stuff I'd have to work out - cron jobs grabbing the strips, etc.

Thanks for the heads up.
