Dear Stephen,

Thanks very much for this -- looks great and I can certainly see it
being useful! It's a wonder no-one has done this earlier actually.

I think we'll probably call it BookmarksPlug and extend it to work with
the Netscape/Mozilla bookmarks.html and Mac bookmarks.plist files (as
you mention in your following e-mail). There has also been some talk
about adding "berry basket" style functionality to Greenstone, where you
collect interesting URLs and then later automatically download these
pages for a new collection; we'll have to think about how this fits into
what you've done. I'm not too sure about a time-frame for all this, but
I'll let you know what happens.

Thanks again for your contribution!

All the best,

Michael
