I want to add to what follows each message that Mhonarc processes. 
Currently, this is appended:

     Prev by Date: Blah Blah 
     Next by Date: etc., etc. 
     Prev by thread: etc., etc
     Next by thread: Blah, Blah

I want to get Prev and Next by Author, as well as include Author in the 
Indexes: area. The documentation says to use <NOFOLREFS> to get rid of the 
stuff seen above, then tailor this area as I see fit. I'm not sure how to 
point to Previous or Next by Author messages, but I also don't seem to be 
able to get <NOFOLREFS> (or even -nofolrefs in the command line) to get rid 
of the lines seen above.

NOFOLREFS refers to something else.  It controls the appears
of the "Follow-ups" and "Reference" links after the message

What you have listed is controlled by the BOTLINKS resource.

I was just wondering if providing support for "by author" to the same 
degree as by thread and date might be a good idea. It's been quite an 
arduous task getting my mhonarc configuration to accommodate "by author". 
Would having ATITLE and all other author-related tags not be a good idea? 
I'm glad to have AUTHSORT and what not ... it just seems like a good idea 
to have all three threads supported *easily*. 

There is a limitation in MHonArc, and it has been mentioned awhile
back.  You can only get next/prev links for the 2 default indexes
(one being the thread index, and the other being what you specify
as your sort: date, author, subject, or message number).  So
you set the default main index to author sorting and get next/prev
by author.  However, you sacrifice the next/prev by date.

One other thing concerning the author thing ... I'm using -title and 
-ttitle with strings that contain *variables* - of the list name and month. 
How can I provide the title for the author page in a similar manner (I 
don't want to hardcode the title in a .rc file)?

For an otherindex's resource file, you can still use resource
variables in the <TITLE>, or <TTITLE>, element.
