Grabbing things from a web page, guessing bits here and there, isn't the
right way to work. The gitweb interface, just like the "old" website, is
meant to be used by human beings, and as such is subject to change and isn't
efficient at all for batch downloads.

I agree with Asaf that an HTTP access to the repository would be useful (I
for one am missing it right now). Any chance the admins could set up any
kind of HTTP mirror?
