   Would we want to restrict availability of this tool to those
   running X11?  

Er... wrong question?

Now that I think about it, I think I'd prefer the "html as a user
interface" approach.  This let's people run with a command line
interface, a ncurses interface, an emacs interface, an x- interface,
whatever.  It also simplifies and constrains that aspect of the system
design.  There's some security issues here, but they can be dealt
