Good point.

Yes, having something like that seems to make a lot of sense. Are you
sufficiently annoyed/motivated to supply a patch? :-)

Dunno, unfortunately. One problem with "your" setup on is that we're using an older version of
gnatsweb with patches backported by me from the current CVS version, as
GNATS 3.x and 4.x are not compatible and we're running 3.x on that box.

As soon as 4.x is approaching release quality, I'd suggest to upgrade
the GNATS installation to (then) current CVS sources which will allow
us to use a current version of gnatsweb as well -- thus also providing
an excellent test platform for gnatsweb itself.
