I've started (and am already behind) doing  something I should have done
from the start, and will try to keep it up: make an html pages per thread,
copying the messages & images (not queries, but discussions, remarks
about different editions, ...).
ex:    the MM story with people being cut in slices; I have Petri, Paolo
and Jan's messages all on one page, along with the scans Paolo posted.
