Greasemonkey script to fix SourceForge download links

First, background: GreaseMonkey is a FireFox plugin that lets you add bits of DHTML ("user scripts") to any webpage to change its behavior or content. It's the Javascript equivalent of user CSS styles.

SourcePlease is a GreaseMonkey script I wrote to avoid having to click through two pages of mirror lists (and then be prompted for a file location) when you encounter a SourceForge download URL. It rewrites the URL to point directly to the file on a random mirror (unless a mirror is specified in the URL), ready to be clicked or copied-and-pasted or whatever you like.

Tell your SourceForge-frustrated friends!
