Sounds fine to me. I am a newbie on MH and Perl, but am a coder from
waaaaay back in other languages. Just point me the direction you would
like to go and I will be glad to collaborate with any and all.
I would like to get Snackamp into my MH setup, but don't know enough about
either to know where to start.
If you could give me a clue on how the pieces would have to fit, I will be
glad to study them and see what I can figure out.
Feel free to contact me off list if desired so that we don't bore anybody.
