This looks nice, too.  I got the xml2rfc package and tried it out.
Interesting that it fails to convert the rfc itself into text (it works for
html) - it stopped after the abstract.  The copy of the rfc on the IEFT site
also stops at the end of the abstract - someone must have run the same tool
and not checked the results!

Anyway, it looks good and may have more than we need.  I sort of copied
Python PEPs (and simplified them) for mine, but I think it needs a few more
features.  Either way, we've got somehting to start using.
