      It seems to me that it could be built into the Mailman system with a 
"switch" to turn it on for those who desire it - either by list or for the 
server.  If I understand it properly, the bit of code in archtoc.html would 
server this function.  Breaking archtoc.htm into two pieces would allow one 
to not have htdig by blanking the code in that template.  It would also 
make it easier to modify htdig, and all the code for the text could be in 
that new template for easy modification or addition.
