Does it properly report source addresses in the log file? I am encouraged
to hear that it operates, however.

Once my ISP offers me IPv6, I intend to do more testing with it.

I think the local veronica *can* be configured for wider use. I have not
released my source for Veronica-2 mostly because it's still in flux; I'm
still working on parallel crawling (fun with database locks YAY!) and the
code is not, shall we say, a paragon of organization. I've been promising to
release it for years and I will, but when I'm satisfied with it :)

However, I seem to remember Chris saying that local-veronica could be made to
crawl other sites than its home one.
