On a vaguely related topic, the source code download page on the webpage 
still lists 4.0.3 as the newest, and the "web interface to our ftp 
server" link is broken, so apparently the way to get the newest version 
is to look at the URL of one of the source tarball links, chop off a 
suitable part of the URL, and go to the ftp server directory from there 
(or just guess the correct URL which isn't too hard, for that matter, 
provided you know which version is the newest). Perhaps something 
slightly more user-friendly could be done?
