I wish there were an easier way to get from the flickr photo page to the
original size image. It would be absolutely fantastic if you could
embed a link to the original size image in the image comment (so you
could get there in one click from the photo page) using this proposed
feature. I'm imagining something like tagging the photos with
"http://www.flickr.com/photos/$flickruser/$flickrid/sizes/o/" and having
it replace $flickruser and $flickrid on upload.
