I think it would be great to do this also, but knowing the previous page may
be a problem in that it maybe a private URL that isn't supposed to be known.
But that site should have security on it anyway (passwd), so as long as you
can't grab their cache I don't see a problem. Paranoid Security people (like
the author of that announcement) would see a problem anyway and these are the
people you have to get around, eh? <sigh>
