Certainly.  The Wiki results page indicates the version from which it 
has been generated (with a link to Snowflake), and the Wiki's main page 
has a link to

Could the latest results (as text and/or tarball) perhaps have a 
permanent web address?  That was my main reason for choosing the Wiki 
page.  In, the text "pkgsrc-results" 
appears several times prior to the link, which makes extracting it from 
the source less trivial (find "breakdown" + extra parsing hocus pocus...)

Given a permanent address (or other easy way to obtain the link to the 
tarball), the tool could easily be extended to display information from 
mdv.txt and/or summary.txt
