On a related note:
I have been considering modifying get_recent_list to check the <year>-1 directory
(if it exists) for more entries if the current year doesn't have enough yet. This
would make the transition from year to year easier.

This then brings up another thing I've been wanting to do. I'd like to have a
single template directory that includes all the languages (every file would then
need to use slices to create the final output). This would allow us to make
changes to the template files and have every language get the updates automatically.
The holdup is that the italian translation hasn't been updated to the new Makefiles
and template style. :( All attempts to contact the translation coordinator have
gone unanswered.
