Lots of GUIs, including Comanche and a web-based tool or two, are
listed at <>. I don't really know whether there
are any portable, web-based, freely-available packages yet, but I
could've sworn I had heard of some.

In most cases, yeah. There is ssh, though (and soon lsh).

It would be nice if this could be integrated into an existing project,
rather than starting a whole new one. But, this would be very cool to
have. Configuration is likely to undergo a huge change soon (I'm
guessing in the 2.0->2.1 timeframe) so you should be ready to rewrite
some code if necessary.
