Sigh. I wonder how long it will be before Msoft figures a way to embed
auto-executable scripting into .TXT files? "Bugtraq: remotely

You'd have to add .MP3 to $MANGLE_EXTENSIONS first, then you could
either poison or strip .mp3 files.

  President of the A.M.A. is adopting "gun safety" as his platform.
