Why everybody tries to solve a problem that doesn't exist IMHO? Why
sourcing in XML in first place. Just throw the email as currently
generated by Geoff between <PRE></PRE> and that's it. That's what
ApacheToday and other online zines do and it seems just fine.

I guess that the only issue are the hrefs, but I guess this can be easily
converted with s/\[\d+\]/.../.
