Yep, I'm here :-)

My opinion is that we have such page before, and it didn't worked well.
It's a maintenance nightmare, believe me, I've do that for long.

I would rather suggest another solution: change the download link from
Files page to Summary page where all packages are digestedly listed, and
links will take you to page listing *only* those files relevant to given

After all, there is also another way to get directly to such page for ten
latest releases right on our main page maintained automatically from SF
RSS feeds.
