We do want to avoid a repetition of past discussions, but we do need the
freedom to discuss alternatives, since the capabilities of these tools has
developed a lot recently.

Now, this brings to the fore ideas about having a simple front end solution
for themers, new users, etc., a front end to an arbitrarily complex back

Maybe that is what should be worked on, for the benefit of those folks.

eternal quest for separating content from configuration, problems in
deployment, etc.
