I've been making good progress on refactoring GnuAE as the backend of a
web site. I've checked the web pages into git as well as sample data for
the database. Right now the php extension is working well. Most of the
GUI support I put in a library, so the top layer is thinner.

I've added a pile of test cases for all the supporting classes and
functions to help stay sane. Right now the web pages are very crude, and
far from fully functional. But at least they have the elements they
need, and it uses the GUI library for most of the functionality. Some
things work, some things don't, and some things are still too random. As
I've been hacking on this for several weeks, I figured somebody might
want to see the direction this project is going.

I've never hacked Javascript/PHP much at all, I'm more of a systems
engineer... Some of how I wanted to do things turned out to be
"interesting..." to do, especially the whole Javascript to PHP
interface, as there is alot of data in each form, and some of the forms
dynamically expand as you add things. Once you get the basics down
though, it turns into alot of cut & paste...

I'm sure somebody more up on all this web stuff could have done this
much better, but oh well, I'm just glad it's all starting to come
together. I'm assuming several more weeks before it starts to really
work, and next week I'll be out ice climbing for a week...
