Since those pages are already generated dynamically, I suppose we could
simply use our own InstallMgr class to browse all known module
repositories for all known modules and display them as well.

That invokes the idea of offering RawZips of those modules, since those
are also currently generated on the fly by those pages as well, which I
think might be a political issue.  But at least the mention of the
module would be nice to see.  Thanks for the great idea.  Wanna
implement it? :)

Well, I supposed it's also a political issue for us.  We might not want
to list all modules of all known repositories on our page. :)
