it seems thar the processor directive `!' only operates on ``current'',
and it seems before it gets written. again, i have not toyed with it

nothing. its just mildly annoying if you want it to rotate via a cron job, so
you can zip it up. (which the process directive may or may not be able
to do. if someone knows how, i would be grateful if they could share
