Hi all !
I just arranged previous messages in a different way so as to make
this thread more «readable» ... Hope you don't mind

even if I was a bit hesitant at the beginning ... now I second that :
Bootstrap is a lovely monster !

Yes . At least I had already thought of that ;) . Indeed, as I
mentioned in previous messages , widgets are inspired on WikiMacros ;
so they actually have a lot of aspects in common ( ... IOW they are
almost the same thing) . Hence the following notes on the the future
of widgets :

- the only thing needed to make widgets become WikiMacros
  is writing an adapter class (easy task ;).
- Later , it'd be nice to implement widgets for all parts of
  Trac GUI (e.g. roadmap , milestones , ...)
- Much later , it'd be nice to offer some Genshi py:def(s) so as to
  easily embed widgets in templates (... added by plugins ...)
- ... maybe more ;)

afaicr , the idea was to start by considering Trac Multi-Project
proposal [1]_ and throw some further ideas in there so as to enhance
it . Nonetheless Gary should have more updated info , I guess ... (
and a bunny inside the hat ;)

.. [1] Multiple project support inside a single environment
