Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

First of the new algo screenshots are starting to go up. My TODO for the remaining work:
- figure out how to take screenshot as soon as goodshot CCMD has done its thing
-- call screenshot and quit from end of goodshot code?
- take multiple shots from each map, eg best 3
- handle WAD/UDMF map lumps in PK3 files
- ability to point wadbot to an offline file, skipping web fetch steps
- detect & handle TNT, plutonia, heretic, and hexen maps too (texture references?) (for heretic and hexen maps, just check the idgames/ subdir they're found in!)
- sometimes choose an IWAD level, pull authors from a list
-- use a predefined list of authors for IWAD maps

TODO v3:
- build local database of maps from full idgames archive, choice() from that
-- how to get the idgames URL for a locally archived file? filename search? regex?
