Those regions seem awfully small, at least in terms of North America.
Maybe we should just be less descriptive about the vendors' offerings,
or perhaps migrate to a CGI that people can use to narrow down their
choices (i.e. "I want to see vendors in Europe who sell Sparc CDs and
allow donations to Debian").

But, on the other hand, the vendor page shouldn't be all that big; it
sounds like wml has some serious memory leaks or something.
