if the pmdevers are too busy to service your request, or until they do, you can keep these links as an html comment in your sig. i keep oft used tags in mine, and include keywords when i find it appropriate.

something like

<!-- [pad://particle|my pad] [seekers of perl wisdom|SoPW] [|suffering from buffering] [ovid]'s [|web programming +using perl] -->
should address some of your needs.
