I guess I'm still not seeing it -- I've never run into an
application like that that HTML::Parser didn't work for, and I
don't see why your approach would have to worry less about the document
layout. I don't see what about your approach makes it less likely
that a minor revision to a site would break something.
It's quite possible I'm just not thinking along the right lines, though.
It's obvious from your FilterProxy page that you know what you're
doing -- if you have ideas of how this approach will be implemented,
I encourage you to do it. Perhaps I'd understand once I see an actual example
or some code.
