Ok, so round 1, there's a cobbler web topic up on cobbler-list -- 
basically about me wanting to rewrite the web app anyway.   Maybe let's 
start talking about Cobbler list about what sucks about Cobbler Web.  I 
will not argue, I agree I have zero idea what I am doing and just make 
stuff up as I go :)

Meanwhile, I'll start thinking about some of these things we can't do 
yet on the requirements list and how to implement them, leaving UI 
aspects totally open, trying to implement things where I can.

Hopefully others can also chime in with other repo features we can't 
presently do so we can talk about both (A) how those workflows work, (B) 
what they look like, and (C) how we implement them.
