I thought about this more,
It would be to extract a list of all pages that are included as <ref>
in the WP. We would use this for the search engine.
we should also make sure that all referenced pages (not linked ones)
are stored in archive.org or someplace permanent.
I wonder if there is some API to extract this list easily?
