Good idea, although there were a couple of problems with the code, untainted
variables (fixed thanks to Brendan O'Dea :). I have put a working version of

Since I'm not one of the webmasters (I do have the write permissions, tho :)
I'd rather not link it from the /distrib/packages page until they approve of
it. Problematic thing is that every new page requires a new run of zgrep, so
master suffers a bit more... perhaps we could move the CGI scripts to lully
or some other devilishly fast machine?
