The word wraps are a little odd I agree - particularly because some
groups have URLs that are just too long to be manageable.  There isn't
much to do about this unless we don't include those groups ... :/

I used impress because it is simple to use to create sheet sized PDFS,
and it's what I know.  I have no opinions on which tools to use as long
as they do the job.  Bill's original version was done in Scribus I think.
