I don't know mootools in details, but I think it's more a developer
Somebody likes mootools, other prototype, next ext.js and others jquery.
But I guess with Marc, we should use one js-framework at the moment wich
is the best for us at the moment.

I will try to do this with smarty. But you're right it's really quite a
lot of work.
It would be nice, to comment in the current development all html-outputs
with a special comment to search for it.
I'm working at the moment on a smarty port in a seperated development
environment and it's really diffucult to get all html outputs by reading
script and code.

Then it's possible to create with templates different pma environments:
- with javascript
- without javascript
- for text browsers
- for PDAs
- etc.

The other point with a template base soulution is, it doesn't really matter
wich framework for javascript is used. Cause it's included in the templates.

A other great thing is, other great oss projects are able to use our core
functional in their own applications.
