Enjoy GSoC :)

BTW, looking again at your proposal, I see that you are going to do
both popularity tracking and backlinks.

How are these two technologies going to interact with each other? That
is, how will the indexer consider the output of those two features?

Also, with your newly acquired knowledge about backlinks, how long is
it going to take your incorporate them in ahmia? Are you actually
going to do it during the "Use an another crawler to search .onion
pages from the public Internet" phase?
