Possible next steps:

  * run this mapping extractor not just on the web site but also on the
    - svn source code
    - mail archives
    - IRC archives
    - issue tracker
    - wiki

  * request a copy of the archive so we can recover if it goes away

  * implement some sort of interface to look up messages in the haxx archive via their message-id

  * implement a URL scheme in our own URL space, map it to one archive (not necessarily this one), and then we're somewhat future-proofed against changing to different archives
