This strikes me as a very cool feature. I was wondering why the powers
that be decided to move away from htDig, since it's always performed
very nicely for me, but this feature is probably enough to justify the
move by itself.
Were there other reasons why htDig was abandoned? I only ask because
I've used it extensively for clients, but if it's got some problems I
haven't noticed I'd like to hear about them.
Anyway, what Greg has done looks good, esp. the links back to
mirrors. Thanks Greg.
