Uh, not exactly...

The web browser will not show the code correctly.  (It will have problems
with > and <, for example.)  I guess it depends if you want it for display

A web interface for source code or executable content is difficult to do
well.  (Just try using the CPAN archives via http for a good example.)

Maybe the eternity documents need to have some sort of content header.
