you could save time by writing a Newt's Cape plugin -- that way you
wouldn't have to write the http: request/transfer part, and since the WML
is similar to HTML, you can even have Newt's Cape do the parsing for you.
all you'd have to do then is provide a table (frame) defining what to do
for each tag.

NewtDevEnv, Newt's Cape, Sloup, Crypto,...
