Added. I also did a search and replace to remove all \t and \n from inside
the <title></title>s. Now everything is sorted alphabetically and I
(personally) think it's a beautiful thing. :)

I noticed this /after/ I'd sent the email, contemplated sending a

interested in reviewing it, adding new references to the bibliography,
