Smallish feature request for validator

I do my best to create only valid markup on my projects, and as such 
find myself using the validator quite often. I enjoy the fact that it 
can review a page via URI or file upload, but I wonder how difficult it 
would be to include an option to paste the file directly into a form?

I ask because I work frequently with systems that are (a) dynamically 
generated and (b) behind some form of validation, so to check these 
pages I must point my own browser at the page, copy the finished source 
out to a file, save it, and then upload it to the validator. It would 
be much easier if I could just paste the source into a form, as then 
the cycle would be shorter (and much more like what I do to validate 
public pages).

In any case, thanks for listening. I've not joined the list, so please 
direct any "you fool! We can't do that because _____" emails directly 
to me, as I won't get them on-list.  (heh)
