I think we should heavily use a template based system, so that just
changing the template set will give us a different view. This way we can
achive both interoperability with text browsers, but also skins so that
distributions may adapt the aspect of the administration tool to their
other administration tools.

But I think Deryck knows much better then me how to handle this stuff.
