Thanks Chris,  If you get part way through this and want to give others
a chance to look over what you've done, feel free to open a bug[1]_ and
attach whatever work-in-progress patches you have.

I think the acls.py file[2]_ is the proper place for the controller code
to live.  And using genshi[3]_ (packaged for fedora as python-genshi) as
the engine for creating a plain text template is what you'll want to do.
