A few people have hit me with a clue bat: we probably should be using the
comp.mail.maps database format for our uucp/Usenet sites, as then we can
feed them through pathalias to get optimal routes.

There are a bunch of 1988 map files here:
and the file format is detailed here:

Question: do we want to keep as much historical information as possible,
and just change the links to reflect our topology? Can we add new lines
to append the information needed now, e.g.

#N      seismo, beno, hugo, maui, noress, perry
#C      Rick Adams
#E      seismo!postmaster
#I	simh.tuhs.org:5000; Warren Toomey

Will pathalias ignore unrecognised lines?
