( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'd like to link directly to the most recent version of documentation for a particular module -- for example, I'd like to have a link that takes me directly to http://search.cpan.org/~dwheeler/SVN-Notify-2.78/lib/SVN/Notify.pm that will automatically switch over to pointing to SVN::Notify version 2.79 (or greater) once a new release is made.

All the examples I've found on the net (after an admittedly short search) involve linking to search.cpan.org with an embedded query string, but this isn't what I want. I don't want to point to search results, I'd like to point directly to a particular piece of documentation, but always get the most recent version of it.

Is there any standard way of doing this?
