Doesn't seem to be working currently.  I recently got two mails back with:
host []: 550 Invalid address in message header

Also no answer from them yet, so I tried here in the newsgroup.

I put an strace into the Makefile, and see that it normally opens a file,
writes Loading... and then reads.  But on the last one, it successfully
opens the file, closes it, yet writes Loading... and then  then goes and
opens and closes it again.

I write "the last one", because each time when I byte-compile it, I get one
file further.  But this is no good, because 21.1, which I'm using to byte
compile gives some error messages.
