This is something I hope to do irrespective of whether Tidy comes avilable
to us. Unfortunately, it's on the backburner because, as you mention below,
this has to take second seat to more important things.

When the Tidy guys finish up the Perl interface, we'll certainly take a
look at it -- and I suspect Björn has inadvertantly promised to do the
integration work now! :-) -- and include it if at all possible.

Quite apart from Tidy being cool all it's own, we've been in need of such a
tool ever since Weblint went AWOL a few years back.
