You could read the module's source code - that's one of the coolest
benefits of open source, you can learn from someone else's
implementation.

Your posts, your replies particularly, are showing the
increasingly-annoying fingerprints of Google Groups. Look at how they
appear to us:

Note the double-spaced quoted text, and the unwrapped lines. Please do
not use Google Groups, as it's nearly impossible to use without
creating obnoxious posts.
