That's a really good plan - I've just added a link now. The front page
at [1] was very much something I put together in a hurry when doing
the last release, after the code.google.com downloads breakage. Any
more suggestions gratefully received!

Given a little more time to do setup, I'm thinking I could/should just
add a wiki for abcde.einval.com, to make it easier for other folks to
contribute. I'll look into that when I'm back from my vacation.
