I do like the idea of having a paste recording. But I don't like the
idea of making it mailinglist based. That sucks. You will end up using
a mail archiver to look through your paste history? Sounds terrible to

Instead I would suggest to develop a paste-server (could be done via
udp) that can be used to store paste's for a given arbitrary prefix
(pick what you want as key for such a paste list).

Then you'd need a paste client that performes a new "paste" for the
prefix given (or compiled into your paste client due to a config.h

The paste client should also allow for retrieving and/or querying in
the dedciated paste list.

Using the same prefix would allow collaborating on a certain paste list.
