Okay, but why can't we host everything on pages like "RLE:long10boat" on LifeWiki?
Then it takes a lot more effort to download the RLE itself (I don't believe there's an easy way to access the raw contents of a wiki page).

Thankfully, we won't actually have to solve all 930 individually. transfer.py is a wonderful thing.

There are a number of still lifes that look like they'd be solved with a transfer of this, for example:
Excellent! A recent run of transfer.py brings us down to 857 unsolved xs19s.
