Your message rubbed elbows with Joe's message on
and it started me thinking.    (03)

If I had an special email program that was only good for ba- mailing
lists (for now), I wouldn't mind keeping that up as a process on my
system, and checking it for email now and then.    (04)

And if it had an iconized version that displayed a flag when new
messages were available, that would be even better.    (05)

Then we could hack the interface and the functionality all we want,
and begin merging the functionality of the data-archive and
interactive email.    (06)

In time, it could evolve into the new standard for message-based
communications and knowledge capture.    (07)
