| There was a *long* discussion of this on the libraries list a few
| back.  See
| and the discussion that followed.
| I think that we should
|  (a) move this discussion to the libraries list and
|  (b) work from the point reached by those discussions

It would be great if someone took ownership of the discussion and
brought it to a conclusion, giving us all a library or libraries we
could use.  Volunteers, stand forth!
