;;; Commentary:

;; Steve Strassmann <straz@media-lab.media.mit.edu> didn't write
;; this, and even if he did, he really didn't mean for you to use it
;; in an anarchistic way.
;; To use this:
;;  Just before sending mail, do M-x spook.
;;  A number of phrases will be inserted into your buffer, to help
;;  give your message that extra bit of attractiveness for automated
;;  keyword scanners.

;;; Code:

(require 'cookie1)

; Variables
(defvar spook-phrases-file (locate-data-file "spook.lines")

(defvar spook-phrase-default-count 15

(defun spook ()
  "Adds that special touch of class to your outgoing mail."
  (cookie-insert spook-phrases-file
		 "Checking authorization..."
		 "Checking authorization...Approved"))

(defun snarf-spooks ()
  "Return a vector containing the lines from `spook-phrases-file'."
  (cookie-snarf spook-phrases-file

		"Checking authorization...Approved"))

;; Note: the implementation that used to take up most of this file has been
