My code is not Object Oriented at all.  Perhaps we should put together a
developer group for this project, and somebody, like you, could manage
it?  I wonder if would let us set that up?  Since the PHP
project just uses MySQL it would be safe under the GPL as far as I know.  I
am very interested in this, and if we can manage to get this one on the
track I think it will be a great tool!

So, if you are interested, I am game, and I will help develop the
thing.  Would of course be totally modular, with classes for database
hookup, help files, interface langauge, and other things.  We could also
use a form of session auth system that would enable you to have admins and
regular builders, and this would be good for an approval system.

I would love to do the GD libs part, I love that kind of stuff.

Also, the Flash client would not be intense.  It wouldn't take up many Kb,
and it would certainly not be processor intense, and most browsers have
Flash already in them.  But, that is an optional, of course, we could add
in a side-by-side system using JavaScript or something.

Kind regards,
