This is being asked once in a while, but I still don't have specific
plans.  It all depends on whether and when I choose to allocate the
time.  I can say that it's not first on my list of major changes to JtR,
though.  For an older answer to the same question, see:

Giannis - please avoid over-quoting.  I am unsure of whether I should
have approved your message - you've even quoted the unsubscribe notice.
I am actually rejecting some postings for low signal-to-noise ratio,
and over-quoting contributes to the noise.
