I agree that being able to "skin" SWAT in the flavor of your choice
would be nice. The simplest way to do this would be to provide multiple
stylesheets -- a samba.org sheet, a tabbed-wireless-router-like sheet,
etc. -- and allow the user to specify which sheet to use. Would we do
this via an smb.conf option (.i.e., web style = "samba.org")? This
would also allow vendors to drop in vendor-specific styles and specify
those, rather than the ones we provide.
Just a thought... again, I'll know better how to approach this as I get
into SWAT2 more this week.
