That seems pretty easy to do programmatically...

That seems entirely cromulent to me!  In fact why not just make it
nburl.net/uln2003 
and inject entries into nburl.net for every part?

(I hope the front page transclude has some sane limiting...)

lulzwut.  There ain't no such thing as a "proper noisebridge service",
nburl.net is as proper as anything else.  (Nobody ever asked AFAIK, we
could easily have it at url.noisebridge.net but the shorter TLD is
nice.  Also, alas, noisebrid.ge is hard to register unless you're
physically in Georgia.)

I suppose it'd be nice if we could do some backups of the nburl.net
database, especially if it's going to have nontrivial elbow grease
applied, but that's orthogonal...
