I have now fixed SRS 5.1 so it *does* work.  It's a relatively simple
set of patches to $SRSSOU/library.c.  The alternative query form still
doesn't work quite right, but I'm working on that, and will submit the
complete set of patches to this newsgroup when I'm done.  wgetz is quite
a lot harder to debug, because it's a CGI program.  I'm having to write
a test C program which incorporates some of wgetz' functionality to test

Was the @file.list thing supposed to work in 5.1, or was it a feature
that never got put in at all?  If it's one that's supposed to be there,
I'll make that my next SRS debugging project!
