A rewrite would be pretty low down my priority list (since it works :-) but
I could simplify it at some stage. What would you say needs doing, just
removal of the formatter abstraction so everything is done in HTML? The code
works as standalone, its not integrated now, its just a script which
receives some file names to process.
