I've thought about it... linking it like that doesn't quite feel right,
because for most users the information on p.d.o doesn't ADD much in
terms of discovering new and interesting software (which is the whole
point - it should answer, "How can this package benefit me / enhance my
life?"). (Though one might argue that it would be interesting to know
the suggests, depends, packages with similar tags, etc.) An ideal
would be if the package title linked to an informative homepage. If I
can come up with some way to automate that... Obviously my vision is
to make it simple (think google.com, not yahoo.com). It might be good
to put the p.d.o link somewhere else, like along the bottom.
