Yes, why not? We have a month for this, right?

Karsten, can you give me some deadlines? When do we need it ready, how much time
to give for testing/feedback/suggestions, etc.

If there is no objection to push this for fc6, I'll start working on it from
tomorrow night.

Good ideas, I'll think about them and either post a more detailed list for
discussion or jump directly into the action.

Yup, I can do the HTML/CSS. It will be based on the first mock-up I did:

Improvements will be based on the comments from Rahul in the thread then [1] and
from Karsten above.
