[gopher] Re: New Gopher Wayback Machine Bot

I know that Veronica-2 obeys robots.txt. Does the bot have its own client name (or whatever it is that 
robots.txt calls it? I have content on my server that is easily replaceable (a mirror) and there
is no reason to do a full text of it. Last time I updated [my not publically avaliable] JUGHEAD, the 
'gophermap' file was already eight megabytes and I have added content since then.

committee -- that will do them in.
