[linux-elitists] Use Powell's to code with

I just noticed that Powells urls are of the form:

    http://www.powells.com/cgi-bin/biblio?inkey=1-0679600477-2

I believe the last digit refers to whether the book is new or used or
something.  It may be a lot specifier.  Whatever the case, it doesn't
seem to be necessary, so the following URL works just fine:

    http://www.powells.com/cgi-bin/biblio?inkey=1-0679600477

This is useful for replacing amazon with Powell's in book-related web
apps.

A: No.
Q: Should I include quotations after my reply?
