World of Card Games supports Hand Animator format

If there were an API that existed to send data from WoCG directly to your PP account, then I can imagine the whole thing would be more conveniently done...

I do not want people automatically getting sent hand histories. There are two reasons: 1) my email service is free up to a certain limit, and I don't want this limit exceeded. 2) Getting a ton of these emails sent to a user might get my email account marked as spam by some email services.

If people would like the entire game history, that's another thing I can add, too. I didn't think the hand animator would handle that. I implemented the functionality by copying the example I had seen.

I am doubtful that most players will want a record of every hand they've ever played... I figured it would be used rarely, mostly when they thought they saw someone playing incorrectly, possibly for checking for bugs. I guess if it turns out that people do want every hand history, I'll have to consider other ways to handle it.
