If I might add ...

Any info at all on the external document parser
support would be really welcome. I was trying to hack
together support for MS-Word files using this trick,
and I got unstuck, because I couldn't work out how
to present the data back to the external parser
in HTDIG. I know this is a feature a lot of people
would like, but without knowing how this works, I
can't go anywhere on it.
