We should probably wait until the devs decide on a course of action. If
they decide not to do anything, then we could invent our own system.

I think your idea will be a lot harder to implement in a GUI then you
think. I recall your idea relied on simplifying what a user typed. They
typed something minimal, and then RegEx or something like that was used to
transform that into a URL. To provide a GUI, you would need to be able to
either query the repository using a RegEx, or you would have to recursive
list of the repository and filter it yourself using an expression. The
first option does not exist, and the second is going to be glacial in

Regardless, I hope this is something you are willing to contribute to the
project as several people would like it.
