Subject Re: board report duplication

Moving to a data format that makes a stronger distinction between content
and envelope might be nice. JSON would work if content is actually quoted
(don't bet on it). A directory would probably be better because the content
of a file can't break the meta-data in the directory. Something like a real
database would be even better.

Let's all blame Telnet and FTP for starting this lamentable trend of mixing
text and meta-data, but it would be nice to stop reliving five decade old
problems.
