well.. as it stand right now doing grep -Re "http" in all the 
directories(minus COPYING/MAINTAINERS) gave me a little over 2000
addresses to check(not so bad, only a few days worth of checking(finding 
the broken address is time consuming)).. so I could go back and do this 
for all of them except the webarchive addresses that are broken(maybe 
put a tag on them saying use_webarchive or something).
then there is the question of how much more bloated will the kernel get 
with such a thing(I'm guessing not much, but then again you never know).
