The more I use wget, the more I like it, even if I use HTTrack more often.
So someday I hope I will find some time to contribute to the project. There
are a few features I would like it to support, like the "wildcard" feature
you mention. Actually it supports regular expressions but it seems the
"--page-requisites" option overrides all applied filters.

Yes I also thought about post-processing the archive using a simple PHP
script. In fact... I think I will try that solution in the next few days.
Stay tuned :).
