FWIW, it's very useful. FWIW, so is RFC-Browser, which provides similar
processing of the existing txt files and cross-links things.

RFC-browser runs locally using the .txt tar of all RFCs; I don't know if
Henrik has provided a .tar of the RFCs that could similarly be used
off-line, but that might be useful to some.
