Great! :) I'll be looking forward to any updates on your progress with it. They also mention the hash bit -- I have no idea how that would be implemented, but plan to do some research on it.
As far as some browsers not sending a HTTP REFERER, you know Opera has an option that allows you to turn that off, right? It's a pretty widely used browser too. Probably about equal with FF usage.
I came across some research about a week ago (I didn't bookmark it but I can probably find it again) that gave some interesting statistics on browser usage. I'll have a hunt around later on tonight after my son goes to bed, and I'll see if I can find it for you.
It may shed a little light on which browsers may be a potential issue but I'm sure there's probably a work-around that can be done. For example, you can use PHP to get the browser type the visitor is using.
I do this myself via php on my site because it allows me to serve CSS files based on browser type without any issues. I use dynamic css because I wrote a user preferences script (for web accessibility) that let's my visitors change the default theme of the site, fonts used, font colors, font sizes, and let's them define their own access keys.
Well at any rate, at least we managed to get enough info together so your site won't be so easily abused.
