The fixed background with scrolling text over it slow on any machine that was
not bought in the past year. Simply making the watermark (if it has to have
such a useless thing) scroll with the text will avoid this slowness and be
easier to read too.

And w3m fails to display the changelogs in a readable form too, apparently
since it is served the changelog in plain text format but with a text/html
content-type. For example, here is the top of pdmenu's changelog as displayed
by w3m:

pdmenu (1.2.87) unstable; urgency=low * The Return of the Shadows (thanks JED,
apologies JMS) -- Joey Hess Sat, 23 Jul 2005 09:22:01 -0400 pdmenu (1.2.86)
unstable; urgency=low * Switch to slang 2. * Since slang 2 has removed
SLSMG_BUILD_CHAR which was used to add shadows to characters, the shadow code

Leaving GET as the only usable way to use changelogs.debian.net at all for
me. :-/

(I've commented about this before in <20051020184234.GC6302@kitenet.net>
without any reply iirc.)
