great start, I like it.
What would be really good is if there could be an API similar to
what pb (example instance: has.
The power of pb lies in its features and its ability to be used
from the commandline. I can simply upload the output of a command
without saving it first to a textfile - I can simply pipe it to curl.
So pb is built using flask (
I'd like to see (and maybe even help when I have the time) a paste web app
written in Guile that can be compared to pb.
Long text, short nonsense: One of many features I'd welcome is the ability
to pipe and paste data to the paste server.

Another useful thing: Be able to delete pastes. I've asked one of the pb
developers a long time ago and they told me that pb just keeps collecting
and you have to manually delete content in the db (or something like that),
no ability to delete pastes for an admin was implemented.
