this is very cool... perhaps this could be incorporated into the OAI-PMH
website? a side bar showing the latest repositories would be a nice way
to insure dynamic content on the web site.

also very cool... suggestion: perhaps do some normalization of the URLs?
or at least normalize based on the Identify response? for example, you
found at least one of my repos twice:
which are the same repositories and give the same responses in Identify.
