The cruft in the hash is needed so that we know what IDs to refresh
when navigating back (which could be taken away into a JS URL-to-IDs
map), and to detect a change if the same URL is accessed several times
(that's probably overkill). Still, the point was to show it can work
today; it really isn't an elegant solution as-is :)
