Sure thing.  (Although, www/ indicates to me .html pages and various other
things too.)

Yes.  This is what mk-zprod does today :)

Sounds good :)

Could you give me an example of how you would do it?  (Then I could
modify the mk-zprod code.)

Nice :)

Morten Petersen from Thingamy will be there, I'm sure he has some thoughts

and I make the necessary changes in the code.  Yeah?

Unless, of course, you have some specific requests right away.
