Internet Archive shows when the main page was locked (made
"read-only").  It can't really be used to prove that nothing else was
locked before that, though (hard to prove a negative).

Of course, I think it's pretty clear that things have gotten more
locked-down over the years, regardless of whether or not things were
ever 100% completely open.
