Not to worry, the old articles in Subversion contain only the headers,
not the HTML. That's up through issue 90 or so. So adding a field to
them is no problem. The problem comes in regenerating the articles
(we can't; the version on the web site is the only version) and TOCs
(they'll look different than the original TOCs and we may lose some
interesting text and links).
Another question is, who's going to think up all these new blurbs for
the articles? It would add a rather significant chunk to Ben's time
if he has to do all of them.
