Time to repeat the six year old proposal originally internally and extenrally
since.

Define a mime type for a repository description file and its format. Add it
with a helper app for mozilla/konqueror/firefox.

At that point you can click on a "subscribe to DAG" button on a web page and
let the helper do the work (via consolehelper to do the "root password" bit)
