That's an interesting idea but probably doesn't fit our current and planned

Since it sounds like nine.buildbot.net is not representative of what Buildbot

installations that I can look at?

I currently don't have time to do that. Are there at least any screenshots
showing off typical versions of the various Buildbot 0.9 screens? Even better
would be a set of before-and-after screenshots showing how the various Buildbot
0.8 screens look now in 0.9.
