It would be extremely useful if CryoNet would be also avalable not
only as digest but as individual messages. This would allow
abovementioned "single-button" skipping, and filtering by established
mechanisms (by sender, by keywords in message, etc.).

Most modern mailing list software (such MailMan) allows digest and
individual message lists to be created and administrated as a single
unit. Subscribers either subscribe to, say, cryonet-digest or switch
to desired form of delivery via a webform.

It would be in principle feasible to break CryoNet into individual
messages by a script, but this is not user-friendly behaviour, since
requiring advanced programming skills, plus use of scripting-capable
