	What?  Where do you get that from?
	SGML does not allow multiple occurrences of the same
	attribute. I thought.

	I think that a short-term solution is to use
	multiple IP addresses (in fact on different machines)

	Anyone want to start talking about a practical
	URN scheme?  Interest? Someone got a project to do?
	Using DNS to find appropriate large index servers?
