I'm trying to migrate to WebSec 1.9 so I made a ~/websec19 directory.  In my
testing, I only had a url.yahoo.list configuration file.  WebSec didn't
really like that.

If that wasn't the exact use case, I think that I deleted my ~/url.list file
and websec waslooking it when I was running a command line like
~/websec19/websec url.yahoo.list.

Either way, some testing should prove it out.

I will do.  I'm not a patch master but I'll come up with something and send
it to you.  In my fork of 1.3.4 right now I have a new diff keyword of
diffonly.  I don't think that websec does anything other than pass it onto
webdiff which does all the work.  Some of the code is commented.  Would you
look at it off the 1.3.4 code stream or should I convert it to 1.9 first?
(And we can move this off list if you'd like.)
