Oh, and while we're talking off topic.
I don't know who's in charge of this, but I think it would be nice to
have urls like: http://hackage.haskell.org/feed2twitter

It would allow me to type in a url from memory instead of having to
copy-paste it. As well as not requiring a url-shortener on Twitter.
This could be done with something like Apache's mod-rewrite.
