I started writing Reflect-Core to serve initially as a means of
externally reflecting on an image with no prior assumptions about a
client other than something that could issue HTTP requests and parse
JSON. That means I could have a shell script or an in-browser IDE and
Reflect-Core would neither know nor care.

Anything _beyond_ that - the HTML wiring necessary for such an
in-browser IDE, for example - is (or should be) beyond the scope of
Reflect-Core itself. But I guess Chris is playing around with
something just like this.
