that won't really cut it, since they are not (yet) searchable, and 
they lack the really old messages that went through 
ginette.umontreal.ca way back when....

douglas, do you think we could set up a htdig engine on 
roar.music.columbia.edu (all lists would benefit from that)?

i hope i don't overstretch columbia.edu's hospitality at some point....

if that's not possible, let me know and we'll find something else.

same problem regarding the old messages.

kai, i will keep looking for an alternative location, and i may need 
to mirror the eca.cx archives at some time....
