Hmm.  Browser based management tools from server console is nice use of 
fb, but double clicking links would be a nice feature for my server toy 
given it's target if I'll ever find time to work on it again.

If you slap together a writeup on the wiki, I'll try and give it a test

a big order to fill at this time.
