My concern is that the underlying URL will change.  Since the part number is
just a parameter, I want to use a rewrite rule to place that one parameter
in the subsequent query string.  If every part is a separate page, changing
the underlying URL requires a change for every part in our list, which isn't
really feasible.

(I hope the front page transclude has some sane limiting...)

In my little world, there are sprinkles.  Also, there are two noisebridge
services I can rely on: the wiki, and the mailing lists.  Everything else is

(I'd propose a mediawiki plugin for this sort of thing, but, given the
calendaring situation, it seems like they must be hard...)

This strikes me as a good idea anyway, especially because it wouldn't be too
hard to just get a database dump of the thing posted to an URL that is wgot
every day.
