I'll have to be honest here and say that I don't really know what people
want from SWAT, even after having asked around. :-)
However, I do think this approach has more advantages than just the desktop
simulation -- it's more responsive and allows multiple operations without
the need for multiple pages. The desktop look is just packaging, and that
could be a bit flavor of the month. But the usefulness of these kinds of
asynchronous web apps is here to say, IMHO.
