pkgsurvey appears to be a three line shell script. Wouldn't take much to
redirect the output to a file rather than pipe it through E-mail.

I was about to do exactly that, then realized they probably have some sort
of automated processor watching the incoming E-mail. Not sure how strict
it would be about the subject line or body of the message (eg. Yahoo!
forces a bit on the signature).
