Monty and Shawn (and others where applicable),

Thanks for all you do.  We know this is freeware (a big bonus for most
of us in the blindness arena) and we really appreciate all of the
donated time you contribute to this effort and trying to make our wishes
come true.

Half of this is already there, there's a send item in the export and 
checkpoints menus. This will allow you to send the files in the ways you

describe. The part we need is called a recognizer, where a program can 
recognize an incoming file format and act on it.
Does anyone want to write this? It looks somewhat complicated. For first
second editions it doesn't look too bad but third edition did something 
completely different.
This is  on the todo list but I'm not sure when it'll happen.
