What does it do already? (O.k., I know the answer: Read the code ;-))

That's what we at iuveno are doing right now. SmartSections (to be released
soon) are simple page elements like headers, HTML text, images, etc. that
can be moved around, added, copied and pasted, deleted etc. A ZClass-based
proof-of-concept is in the Kontentor 1.x framework.

The whole thing will then be embedded into SmartPortals, which are
configurable web pages where you can move around boxes etc. Remember I
presented the idea in Amsterdam?

We are very open to ideas and help!

Yep!

Yep!
