FWIW, I think developer.php gives a useful DDPO, but I'm a bit puzzled
why also some kinds of per-developer or even per-package information is
all also generated from developer.php. The file as it is is already
quite large, I think it can better be in a new 'new.php' or something,
if you really want to add it, as it probably hardly shares any code from
developer.php (and if it does, that should IMHO be refactored into a
include file).

Similar for per-package popcon, per-maintainer wnpp, per-package
excuses: I think they are better off in separate files, and not in one
big php script behaving completely different depending on arguments.
