oh totally - it makes perfect sense to retain any leverage already gained
from search engines deeplinking into beo, and also bookmarks, manual links,
etc.  beo is more than a community resource, it's a time capsule,
permanently open to the public.

I was actually thinking about something similar, so as not to constrain the
directory structure too heavily - if the UI can take the strain with
presenting download links and information to the browser, the actual
directory and file structure of the underlying file system can be pretty
much abstracted.  That might be a good thing actually :)

anyway, 4:20am local time - i'll continue these thoughts tomorrow morning
... damn, it is tomorrow morning :)
