Questions/Ideas:
* Link to API node or node+language?
* How to clean up out-of-date links?
* Forward copied links to display their original version
* Add up/down votes on linked resources, only show highest
* Mark linked resources as obsolete
* How to link language support to library version?
* Add "Ask a Question" button that goes to AskUbuntu, link back to the API node automagically
* Can users edit descriptions from the import, and do we forward-copy those edits to new versions
