The idea is [literate explanation] . . . Utterly tangential question: how is it that RFC discussants *never* post announcements in newsgroups? To me, it seems quite natural that, for example, T. B.-L et al. would have made a point of alerting a.c.u that RFC1738 is of interest, and pointing to <URL: http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/htbin/rfc/rfc1738.html> and mirrors for details. Has that been happening somewhere without me noticing? I've narrowed follow-ups.
