Simplifying hyperlinks

A suggestion for the SRS gurus out there ....

When adding a new SRS database, normally two files must be updated:
"dbname.sdl" and "hyperlink.sdl"

The first file defines the database to be indexed. The second file defines
the hyperlinks for all databases. The help page for each database on the
SRSWWW server links to both files so other sites can pick them up.

The "hyperlink.sdl" files are getting very large - especially for those
sites who are busy adding new databases. It is getting very complicated to
pick up some other site's "hyperlink.sdl" and find which extra lines
are needed to update a local copy.
