I think that new-httpd will be able to provide some excellent
guidance in the fit and form of the GUI. I think it's great.
But is anyone else semi-confused that for our Configuration scripts
and such, we try to keep things as basic as possible, meaning

about Tk and Java front-ends for _running_ it?
