Please note that I'm not flaming him.  My first email specifically 
stated that this was a feature that I had intended to include with my 
original port to the new mythweb, but that I had decided that it would 
be too much effort to maintain it if I had to do my own screen scraping, 

Then, I suggested the easier solution of taking the location data that 
mythweather stores in the database and using it to create a link to the 
source that mythweather scrapes -- since that would be a very easy task 
and get the same functionality.

I have NO trouble with someone taking the time to write a weather 
scraper, since it'd keep the mythweb interface consistent (and as I 
said, I much prefer the mythweather artwork -- any theme -- over the 
commercial sites' own artwork).
