We discussed some time ago about turning the XML-DEV hypermail archive into
XML and someone (can't remember whom) made an offer. It's only a matter of
cryptanalysis on the HTML that the hypermail emits - should be an easy
weekend. Volunteers would be very welcome.

Clearly the time will shortly come when e-mail is also XML-ised - we have
also discussed this on XML-DEV. When people start sending XML e-mails to
XML-DEV then we shall capture them with glee (well, not quite, as we don't
own the server - but the thought is there).

This is actually an excellent project for anyone who wants to learn XML - a
nice mixture of structure and text.
