Shame on me :( I fully agree on the fact that innreport is not well
designed, nor well written (my first perl program ;)). It started on
my dislike of innlog.{awk|pl} but grew into a monster as time passed.
I've planed to redesign it from scratch several times but with no luck
until now. According to reports I've had, people like it as is (except a
few glitches). As the mailing list is almost dead and my calls to
contributions have been ignored, I'm puzzled about the need of a new
version :(
