Good point. Let's keep them in a subfolder called 'originals'. As
we switch over to the OJS, we will automatically have a good archive
of the originals. I think this will be an important "trail" to have
especially for those who want peer review, etc.

Anyone is welcome - anytime - to try improving the layout and show
the rest of us how it goes. I have a copy of the layout for the Free
Software Magazine and am interested in trying to use it as a basis
for a version 2 of our layout. Once we have something more print-
worthy, it would be cool to have it put online through print-on-
demand publisher so people can buy a hardcopy of a set of volumes
(e.g. 2007 compilation).
