This is a great goal, certainly.  I'm quite interested in hearing how
you would like to accomplish these things.

Not to the best of my knowledge, or rather I haven't seen such a
project announced on the list in recent past.  With gnatsweb, do you
intend on editing the control files directly?

Well, this is certainly the right place to discuss it.  Gnatsweb is in
much need of some lovin', so to speak.  I look forward to hearing more
from you!  Currently, I do not have commit access or administrative
access to the Gnatsweb project.  The admins of that project are found
on the Savannah page as Yngve Svendsen and Gerald Pfeifer.  We haven't
heard much from either of them in some time.
