My design-idea.html alreay makes heavy use of CSS :)

Err, no, I don't want to reformat the bug page itself, I want to reformat
the result of the bug "overview" where my 88+ bugs are displayed, i.e.
   http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?maint=ch@debian.org

So the easiest would be if I could just make a "pkgreport2.cgi" which copies
all the query code but then displays the results with a different function.

I just fear that you won't let put my scripts onto the official server that's
why I hoped to get a good idea from you. Else I will have to "parse" the HTML
that pkgreport.cgi returns.

bye,
