Hi Dave,

On hearing your idea, I must admit I like it better.

It looks like you have gone into much thought about this!

As far as UI interface goes, would you consider something like
Fast-Track currently has?

It would have some use. I did have a look at using XUL to try and do a
noddy interface for Nikto (though it seems excessively complex in
to back end code). I'm not going to rule out the feasibility, but it is
beyond my current skills - if anybody knows enough about how to make
then fill your boots.

My current plans for UIs are to do a simple proxy which control and
directly through the web browser. One of the enhancements planned for
next release after 2.1.0 is to abstract out UI elements so it will be
easier to swap and change UI.

The current ideas I have for UI interfaces are:
* traditional (i.e. CLI - as we have now)
* shell (allows greater control over specific tests/plugins and will
replace nikto -Single)
* GUI (a lot of work and requires choosing a widget set that's cross
* plugin/gadget (potentially, if we can get talking to back end code:
though they're this'd have to be browser specific)
* proxy (simple to use and compatible with everything)
