Are you sure that's useful? I mean, every time I've seen someone maliciously 
giving such things, they just gave them in the channel, they didn't link to 
sites *containing* them.

I could do it as a "just in case" thing, but then there's the risk of false 
positives, and I'm sure we'd hate getting too many !ops false positives...
