   Mine also works, it's a great deal less intrusive (wild pointers or
   memory leaks in the code can't compromise the integrity of even a
   non-forking server), it's quick, it can be easily modified to suit
   local conditions by webmasters who don't want to mess with the server
   code itself, it doesn't commit the server code to any particular index
   format, and it can be replaced at will with any of the more capable
   search engines that are widely available.

...but wait!  There's more!  It parses the full Aliweb IANA template
syntax, which means that people who already have Aliweb site indexes
can use them directly!  And the format has other advantages...  in
addition to trivia like having more mnemonic field names, it supports
multi-line descriptions and keyword lists (using the usual RFC822
continuation syntax)!

It slices!  It dices!  It chops!  And if you order now, you get a free
turnip twaddler!
