Simple LUA -> addon site

So I made this simple page:
http://addon.bool.no/

My question to you is, how could I make it better -as in more easy to use? Any ideas are welcome.

I know there are many guides how to make macro into addon and such, but I think that many are simply "cba" to do it, too much work, so they ask others to. With a page that does it for you and gives you an zip like any other addon you download, maybe it helps a bit, don't know, that's why I ask for feedback. :3

Hide the toc until someone really wants to change it.
The toc is not for beginners who just make a makro into an addon

But I like the idea but fear you as a single person will have trouble when the bad guys notice you could give them access to wow users.

Without login credentials or really info storage of any kind, there's nothing for them to poke around for to cause trouble.

I had an idea on my own site that would do the reverse of this. It would take the addons I created and uploaded, and allow a visitor to browse through the code before downloading it. The addon would be stored in a zip archive and the PHP script would directly read the files inside to accomplish this.

So the ideas are;
(1) Syntax highlight for the lua code, may be tricky but I'll look into it.
(2) Do not show toc until really needed, so I could use the folder name as base for toc title unless it is specifically edited on request, some show/hide button thingy on the toc step.

As for safety, the file is automatically created and as soon the zip is either canceled or downloaded, the file is removed from the system. There is nothing to steal, except maybe accessing http://addon.bool.no/cache for the latest interface version, it's automatically updated from Blizzards latest patch note page.

If you don't want users in a specific directory tree and are using the Apache server (don't know of other servers support it), you can drop the following lines in a .htaccess file in the directory.
Code:
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
