I haven't updated the legends yet. However, NEW! hasn't disapeared, it can
be set by ":new :yes". Example (just for demonstration): the mustek
backend on the above mentioned pages). So the NEW! stays at the
backend level, while the other status show up at the model level.

I will update the legends.

Identical links are automatically filtered. They are not identical
(one more "/" at the end). Best ficxed by adding the slash to evry URL.
