It would be great if you could browse the source code (and other
files) in a PLaneT package directly from http://planet.plt-scheme.org/.
You can already read the doc.txt file, so I (naively) imagine it's not
hard to extend this to make the other files in the package browsable
(with suitable index pages).

Of course, usually what I really want is to browse the SVN/CVS tree
that the package source came from... but I guess that's up to the
package authors to make available (directly or indirectly) via the
"homepage" field in the info.ss file.
