Yes, I think this will be very useful as no two people observe and write
note on the same objects at the same time, so anybody could check
rapidly if there is any previous posting to compare.

Maybe the index could be done sending a command to list the directory
(as it seems that each post is a file on the Web, is it?), then the list
could be indexed using a common programa (Word, Excel, etc) and
converting to HTML with another common program (Word 97?). [Only draft
