Do we have any idea yet when this will be done?  It would be nice to find 
the patches. 

I am especially looking for the one that allows html footers to use it to solve 
the AOL problem that no one either knows how or volunteered to write a 
script to gather the redacted ARF addresses from the mail log.  I remember 
there once was a mod to make the headers and footers html, and wanted to 
see if that would work.
