I would probably do something like this:
htstat -u | grep >foo.urls
htdig -m -m foo.urls

I think I should make this a FAQ. The short answer is "real soon now." The
long answer is "the more help we get, the faster it goes." Right now the
snapshots should be fairly stable, but we may have to break the databases
one last time before we release the final version. (This is not as bad as
it sounds. With the new htdump/htload utilities, you can dump the
databases, delete them, then load them into a new version. :-)

The biggest snag is the code is not feature complete yet. Since several of
the major contributors are very busy right now, it may take a while if no
one steps forward to help with things like duplicate detection.
