Most of the sites I see are text only, or the images do not matter
(joelonsoftware.com has an occassional filler image). Though I can
understand the interest in having the images too for heavy graphic

It is not hard to simply download the images, it is slightly more work
to change image links to point to them, but not much work.

Sending the image with the graphics (option 2) is probably the best, it
will also require sending a MIME mail with the HTML and the images, it
will need to be researched. But I believe Perl already has the
appropriate modules to send such mails.

Right now the HTML mail is not even a MIME mail, but simply the HTML as
the text of the mail.

I'd be happy if you can provide a patch, no need to wait for a frozen
version, simply take the latest version (but not the snapshot), and use
that. When you are finished, you can either merge the changes of the
latest version at that time, or send me the diff against the version you
worked on and I'll integrate it. I'm doing just that for patches from
Adam Stanley at this time.
