Notes
=====

    - A line in the body of a post is considered to be original if it
      does *not* match the regular expression /^\s{0,3}(?:>|:|\S+>|\+\+)/.
    - All text after the last cut line (/^-- $/) in the body is
      considered to be the authors signature.
    - The scanner prefers the Reply-To: header over the From: header
      in determining the "real" e-mail address and name.
    - OCR (Original Content Rating) is the ratio of the original content
      volume to the total body volume.
    - Please direct all comments to the *niX Power Tools Project home page
      http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=20434
