The Scrapbook Firefox extension is great for this purpose, but as it
is not related to the "dark mode" idea anymore I suggest that we leave

Wget has a function for crawling a list of URLs, and I imagine that it
would not be difficult to grep the notebooks for URLs to feeded. Of
course, not being a programmer it is rather easy to imagine these
