Why not feed the site through the filter dynamically and once some is 
filtered, send it out to the browser?
Before there's anything even to filter, it could say, like, "mapfile 
retrieved", "DBR root retrieved", although this would tend to confuse 
newbies. Maybe we need to ship some good documentation available directly 
from FProxy.
