We are a small ISP and we have a "Customer Home Page" where we place
information of user to our customer. We also place links to
interesting and usefull places on the net. It would be nice to have
a small stand alone program that could, given a base URL and a number
specifying how many levels deep it should go, just go out and get the
pages via Squid.
