Added rudimentary formatting and handling of redirects. The links don't actually work because I haven't gotten it to register itself as a handler for the gemini: scheme.

I've hit that phase of all my personal projects where the initial mania has worn off, and the scope of the things left to do is daunting. Maybe that means I should just GPL what I have and put the source up somewhere, to revisit when the mood strikes.
