status report

the current CVS of GITK has many changes:
* the core module can now be built to include an internal http-server
(via libhttpd)
* one can use this frontend to inspect and change a currently running
* view the xml dialog definitions (source and transformed)
* change locale and style on the fly!

I currently investigate how to change the style for gtk+ apps locally.
Further I prepare the software so that renderers can be switched at run-time.
