There are already some directions:
-WABrowser in seaside...
-Janko also plan something in this area (see Summer of Code)...
-and OB-Web is also particularly cool...

I think navigable and sand-box images should be detached from the "web
site"... so doesn't really matter how the web site is done... but
definitely a good idea :)

For the squeak site, I see two alternatives:


And as Janko seems motivated to invest time... I wouldn't mind, he
does it in Aida...

But maybe before choosing the tool, objectives should be clear ! And
right now It's not clear to me if people want :
(1) fresh and updated content + design, or
(2) the next gen web site...

As a start, I think (1) is enough especially if deadline is March 31 !
