Hello Peter,

In addition to the fixes I've commented on inline below, I've also added a new 
rout for specified repository revisions.  So the following citable URLs are now 
supported in the test tool shed.  These fixes and enhancements will not be 
available on the main Galaxy tool shed until the next Galaxy release.

This behavior has been fixed in change set revision 8802:7ccddea80a25 which is 
currently running on the test Galaxy tool shed.

This one is tricky and may have to wait until we eliminate the Galaxy iframes.  
If I can figure out a way to make this work before that, i certainly will.  
I've created a separate Trello card for this.

These are now working since the Galaxy release last Friday.
