That's a good idea - so many "spin-offs" of Hello Dolly have been
redistributed as new plugins - it would be much easier to make it use one
or more installable lists instead. (Y)

Good idea... but while you're at it, why not externalize the list of
"lyrics"/"tips"?   Then default to run off the tips file, but include
the Dolly file in the distro if anyone wants to.

Incidentally, I switched out the lyrics with Bauhaus's "The Passion of Lovers", but that's just me....
