Thanks for bringing this up - after spending a few weeks messing about trying to get Zim to access a cPanel "WebDisc" (a VB desktop applet and/or something on SSL port https://example.com:2078/), I have come the conclsusion that there /has/ to be a better way.

Given what I know about Perl's ability to transparently access remote files and file systems, I was just getting ready to start looking at the Zim sources, but figured I should catch up on the FAQs and mailing list, first...

I look forward to following and participating in this!
