I understand and respect that, I am not good in php.
If you setup a framework in php, i will follow suite, and try and help
extend it. 
The client code i have taken over from wide-cli is in perl and is fine
as a client. We can talk via xmlrpc.

It would be difficult to get the data to the client,
the client now parses the html pages. They can change and break the

I propose to replace the html output from the server php code with
xmlrpc and send that over the exisiting connection. The client can talk
xmlrpc and send the needed information.

It might be easier to put the deb reader in the backend,
Christan said that that there are some backend perl scripts.
It might be easier to bypas the entire client server thing 
and just upload an XML file with a DEB attached and inject it straight
into the db.....
