I'd be glad to if it is something people wants. Personally I'd prefer a client
server GUI over a server GUI and I think webb GUIs sucks in terms of instant
feedback and possibly also supported browsers. People tend to think a webb GUI
should work in any browser but if it does it is usually on the expense of the
nicer features making the GUI interactive or *lots* of work and maintenance.
