Not sure how to tackle the block/filter thing off the
top of my head, but I like your idea about examining
the REPO file to see if a repository is being
maintained.  Of course, a lazy maintainer could always
setup a cron job to httpup-repgen, but ..I'll see how
easily I can work it in and we'll go from there :)
