Hi, Derrell.

This is not meant for or against the use of qooxdoo, merely as a general
note about SWAT direction, based on my experience of working on Samba4

I would recommend that Sreepathi create the HTML elements used in the
user manager independent of any JavaScript toolkit or framework.  Before
he can do any UI work, he'll need the EJS/ESP plumbing in place to make
a user manager possible.  I would focus on this first and worry about GUI
specifics later.

Even if everyone agrees that qooxdoo is the best choice for SWAT's UI,
I'd still recommend the above approach -- server-side work first, then UI --
so that there is still useful user manager code that can be implemented
within any UI framework.
