Hi David,

To be honest, it's been many years since I wrote the gophermap code and
I'm not sure if I even realized it supports HTML links at the time.  A
patch would be most welcome here.  (My time to work on pygopherd is
quite limited at the moment.)

My recollection is that there was something a bit weird about Python
that caused there to be a constant 2ish zombie processes.  If that's
what you see -- the number of zombies remaining constant -- it's nothing
to worry about.  If they are multiplying, then that would require more
