First something off-topic:  Dan, how do you generate the package names
that are seen in that left-hand column?  I've often thought it would
be handy to see the "history" of package names, and that seems to be
exactly what you have there.

Personally, I think a special icon with a link to<id>.html (or internally rendered page) and an
ALT="<topic>" would be just swell!  It might also be handy to have
a bright warning in the top, main section if the HEAD is currently
affected... similar to how you handle FORBIDDEN, BROKEN, IGNORE, etc
