OK. Well, the biggest hurdle now is the composing, because otherwise
there will be nothing to brand. ;-) I made a first proof of concept of
this i March, but now IResult popped up, and Gary says thats the place
to do it. I think we easily can do the branding there too, which much
greater simplicity and flexibility than Deliverance. For example we
won't need a separate http-server for the branding html, and we can
easily "brand" different view differently by selecting different
layers for them.
