How difficult would it be to port the Random Quote plugin? (

I have a client that was using this but is migrating their site from TWiki to Foswiki.

Take a look at the FortunePlugin. I ported this a long time ago. It has similar features.

Vicki, if FortunePlugin doesn't do it for you, please consider doing the port for Foswiki. If FortunePlugin is sufficient, please mark this task No Action. Thanks.

Unfortunately, the need to have (and run) strfile as well as the complication of defining a "database path" in configure makes FortunePlugin not a good choice for anyone but a *nix admin.
