that's an excellent point, I didn't realise this before!  Let me dream:
when looking up a sequence, a button appears labelled "conjecture
relations", that runs superseeker (or whatever) on the sequence.

Of course, this is mostly interesting for finding relations between
*several* sequences, since it can then always use the *current*

Successful searches could be cached.

I admit I have no idea how many sequences I could feed my program with,
to look for (say, algebraic) relations, and I do not really know which
kind of relations one should try to look for.  Of course, algebraic
relations are most natural, but just this month I found a relation
between Dirichlet series for


(I'll submit the corrected and extended sequences on monday, the arxiv
changed policy and gives the eprint number only upon anouncement...)
