From my experience at SourceForge I expect there will be some file-size
constraints. I could never keep the docs online at SF because they were
too large for the 10 mbyte home directory. For XFC I split the docs up.
The sundry documentation is about 1 mbyte and should be ok. However, the
actual reference documentation is 28 mbytes. I guess that's tooooo large
to keep on the server.

I'm happy with "xfc-users" and "xfc-dev" if that's ok.

Is there any advantage to using list fancy indexes.
