	By front-end support, do you mean filters to the frontend display
markups and support in SWMgr and frontend derivatives to add the ThML
filters to the modules?

How would you rate the the thmlrtf filter?  Just looked at it and the
CVS log:
revision 1.1
date: 1999/12/08 18:12:55;  author: scribe;  state: Exp;
Added Chris Little's initial cut of ThML filters

But when it comes to ThML, I am still pretty ignorant.

I've only really had complaints about the remote lookup mechanism.  I
don't think it would be a bad thing to make it the next version of the
JFB module.  By the way, is it freely distributable?

Thanks Chris,
