Brings up an interesting point I've been sort of researching. What's
the best way to write up a robots.txt file that allows the local htdig
to index, but nobody else? I know using a user-agent of htdig should
allow it to index, but seems to allow remote htdig's also. I guess I
could disable robot.txt looking in my local copy, but even though I
trust myself not to abuse that...
