I think that if we do all this, we should combine it with people.html. Each
maintainer name should be a link to a maintainer page. This page would list
the maintainer pakages (with links and descriptions) and, optionally,
maintainers personal info (photo?).

CGI should be avoided whenever posible. It can't be mirrored.
In this case it would be better to have 1) a huge list with all filenames
or 2) a page per directory, listing all posible files that packages may
place (i.e.: http://www.debian.org/Packages/Files/usr/bin/ ===> "Index of
files in /usr/bin/" ).
