If it *looks* like copying, it should be avoided.

I think it will be necessary to regenerate articles as the Wine project
evolves. I regenerated the 'dlls' page after Alexandre's CVS run today.
There was some new content so I saved the result. I've regenerated the
individual DLL pages several times as I improved the generating
scripts. Both activities put a load on me that I am trying to automate.
In fact, if you look at the original post before it got hijacked into a
discussion of the project name, it asks about a way to improve that

Since there will be fairly frequent semi-intelligent reviews of pages,
such queries can probably be incorporated into that process.

Can you help me with this, please?
