This is something corporate users keep asking for. Possibly there are
implementations out there that don't make Brion cough up a hairball.

I certainly don't look at every wiki and every list I have access to
for this reason.

Summaries? Though no-one's stepped up from the comcom to do a weekly
summary of wmfcc-l as yet, though all being in agreement it would be a
good idea. (I'm thinking something similar to software list summaries
like 'Kernel Traffic' or 'Wine Traffic'.) I might try just to see what
it requires, but don't hold me to that.
