This turns out to be a tough site to scrape! Ironically, they probably
designed it with that in mind, but it's hurting them by making stale
content reminders more difficult to generate.

I think the best approach for download.com a.k.a. downloads.com a.k.a.
download.cnet.com would be to set up a single "official" account and
then check the "uploads by this user" page for a current version
number. There are already two such accounts, "Postgresql Community"
and "PostgreSQL Global Development." Each user has a profile page that
lists all their uploads, and that can be scraped easily enough.

Can anyone here claim ownership for one of the accounts I mentioned?
Anyone want to set up another one and let me know so that I can track
it?
