Well, that took *way* longer than I wanted to.  Anyway, a rough 
sketch of what I'm thinking of is here:

And, to prove that this new system isn't any worse than the old one:

This is a python-based CGI script that uses Greg Stein's EZT library 
(much kudos to Greg for this awesome tool).  It allows for the 
separation of the layout from the mirroring data.  Therefore, it 
makes it really easy to do the above with only one CGI script 
(httpd.cgi and list.cgi are symlinked to the same file) that has 
multiple 'views' and templates.

We would probably have to work a bit on the layout and flesh it out 
some, but this is the idea that I had.

Source at:

If I could run CGI scripts from my home dir, I wouldn't have stuck 
this in's docroot, but CGI scripts are not allowed 
from user directories.  ISTR mentioning this before and getting no 
response from Greg or Jeff.  -- justin
