I wrote a rough script that uses the API to present the issue list as 
static pages, and currently have it running at 
<http://canvex.lazyilluminati.com/misc/cgi/issues.cgi/>. It ought to 
work the same in any browser.

The source is at 
<http://canvex.lazyilluminati.com/misc/cgi/issues.cgi/source> - everyone 
should feel free to copy or improve or run it themselves.
