Yes, one of my long term goals!

BTW, I realized that Cairo (also not installed on the Solaris test
machine) is used for PDF creation. But I think it makes more sense to
have the webapp create the reports in HTML. So, I switched to HTML for
the default report output type.

So the requirements for a wsgi-based gramps-connect are fairly
minimal: apache, python, django, mod_wsgi, make, and gettext. The last
piece of functionality is PIL, and showing/selecting areas in images
(which I hope can be done in HTML/Javascript).

Here, try this: http://deepliquid.com/projects/Jcrop/demos.php?demo=live_crop
