See htcommon/DocumentRef.h, which has comments on each field. The
field list should be complete.

Not really. Probably the easiest way to approach fixing the Perl
scripts would be to build an XS interface so the Perl code can call
the C++ interfaces. But I don't have any experience in that sort of
thing and have my hands full anyway. So it looks like it will only
happen soon if someone volunteers to do it.

I thought that most of the recent versions of ht://Dig had the
scripts modified to at least work with Berkeley DB. If that's not
true, then someone should at least fix that (again)!
