Good idea. I assume most harvesters won't catch that - although again,
parsing it out would be trivial. The page size increase would be
minute - it is unlikely to even need a single extra packet to be sent
(and therefore no impact on the server). The only exception would be
the 'top 100 participants today' page, which would become perhaps a few
