Further on this topic: Looks like we have a volunteer to maintain a
page. How should it be linked? Any views, Nigel?

I don't mind my original mail being forwarded, nor did I expect or intent that
you would "handle the issue" yourself. I just thought that it's up to you to
decide if the point is in your eyes worth being looked at or straightly dumped.

Copying a good way to acomplish things is nothing to feel ashamed for so all I
can suggest from my opinion is taking the approach that Tobi Oetiker did with
rrd-world. It's kept short but shows at a glance that there is much available in
addition to rrd.
I guess that covers rather sensitive ground now and I have no idea how the web
pages and access to them are handled in detail, but I can happily provide and
maintain a page for summing up exim-world code. The page can be externally
linked in (running here at continum.net) or scp'd automatically.
Please get back to me if you think this would make sense and would be helpful.
Kind regards & good night!
