That sounds good to me.  We may want to swap out the HTML Parser -- the
code I used was GPL, so I had to release spindle under the GPL.

It's a small amount of code though, so we could rewrite it without too
much trouble (or use a different library), since I assume we need to be
able to release under the Apache License.

Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to do.
