Actually, I've already written a routine for it that automates the
process: the first time the script sees a ".org" domain, it starts a
20-second clock. If another ".org" shows up within that interval, the
script will sleep the remainder of the interval - and restart the clock.
Rick should be receiving the new version (1.6) in his mailbox right
