Exactly. It will be an _additional_ feature. Just like an option this
is yet another thing to take into account for maintenance. Surely if/when
we provide this, there will be request for other viewcvs features. I'd
rather punt on this feature and point people to viewcvs directly. The
proposed syntaxes already resemble the viewcvs ones anyway.

Indeed I did. Having this extra url feature, just means another thing
to access control.
