Thanks, applied.  You messed up my nice table with your overly long name
and URI though :P

I'm not sure I like this trend of people doubling down on links to their
projects all over the page, but applied as-is for now.

I think it better to purge any dead projects from the list.  More
important to show the good/alive stuff than be all-encompassing.

Maybe with an (in development) tag or something.  I put Ingen on there,
which has never been released...

Maybe a separate page for this instead?

Or, alternatively or in addition depending, convert to markdown and
integrate as an actual article on the site itself?
