	This raises a new question for me; I'm working on resurrecting
the Web archives of the SIG lists, and currently e-mail addresses are
turned into mailto: URLs, which could easily get crawled.  Should this
policy be changed?

	To some degree the damage is already done; the archives were
live at Magnet for a while, so they may already have been crawled by
spiders looking for e-mail addresses.  But it's still worth fixing
this if people think it necessary.  We'd have to write a mailto CGI,
and put some simple database underneath it.
