Hi, all.

I've been working slow and steady on a SWAT redesign.  This project was
undertaken largely just to update the look of SWAT, to make it more
sleek and modern.  In the process, I've tried to update to XHTML/CSS and
tried to make a simpler, more user-friendly interface.

As part of that user interface work, I've renamed some pages,
consolidated all the docs into a help menu, and made other small
labeling/naming tweaks.  I would appreciate any testing and feedback you
all care to offer.

The new SWAT has been checked into svn TRUNK for those who want to use
it first hand.  For the rest, I have a brief screenshot tour at
http://samba.org/~deryck/swat/.  (Warning: large images follow. :-)

(Note: I only ensured this worked in Mozilla/Gecko-based browsers and
Konqueror.  If there are other browsers being used on Linux/Unix that
aren't covered by this, please let me know.  I didn't cover IE because I
figured SWAT is largely used from Linux/Unix.  I'll get IE eventually,
though, just to be thorough.)

Let me know what you think.  Cheers,
