Well my work on this assignment is drawing to a close. What we have
works really well. In a few months, I expect to be brought back on so
our work can be made to work in a browser.

What we have now is a x-platform solution. We store python scripts & ui
files on our device (ppc), and they are fetched by the PC application.
We then run them in an interpreter that is embedded in our application.
The output of the dialogs is collected and sent back to the unit. On the
unit, there is a user interface that launches the scripts locally. It
really is a superb solution - we don't need to know what firmware
version the unit is, and we don't have to be backwards or forward

The idea would be to point a browser at the unit and be able to operate
the interface, a menu of dialogs, and run the selected dialog. To that
end, we import qt, and qtui. We use signals and slots, and have a rich
user interface with validation, run-time enable/disable and such.
