I agree with John.  I don't think there's a very good match between
WML and his system because the reports are pretty much hand-generated
at John's discretion, and because those reports require up-to-date
access to packages files....  I guess it could be done but I haven't
looked into it.  It would be complex -- you'd want to make sure we
don't rebuild the reports every day.

Anyhow it's a whole ball of wax.  AFAIK, most of the bulk "derived"
pages such as the mail list archives are not in CVS nor WML.
