   It doesn't have any links to the programs themselves, or even pointers 
   to their home pages. Its purpose is to show which version has been 
   published where, and who is maintaining that.

That doesn't really matter, the list lists non-free software packages
and users can easily think that the program is free software (since
there is no license information associated with it).  That alone is a
good reason to not suggest it.

Since this web site does almost the same job as the Free Software
Directory, why not interface against that instead?  That lists
exclusivley packages that have been confirmed to be free software.
