I would be glad to write this code in PHP, I am quite experienced and able
in the language, and am already helping Jonathan set up some other parts of
the website...

I don't think this really has to be a jsp. You could also use another
language that you prefer if it is easy to port and extend the existing code.
Maybe you could use Perl of PHP?

Please also take care of different sorting mechanisms (after language, name,
date, version etc.). This could be triggered by commandline args, and these
could for example be triggered by the links in the head of the table that
ModDsp.??? will generate. Just a suggestion.

Maybe this important tool can be added to the main CVS?
