That is a cool tool. Pivot could work there, but AJAX might be the  
best choice for that app. It seems to be a tool for searching and  
presenting documentation, which is what HTML does best.

Basically, I'm trying to brainstorm ways that we might collaborate  
with other Apache projects. Because it has a richer widget set than  
HTML, Pivot is a great way to build "system management"- type apps. It  
occurred to me that Maven might be a good fit, but I'm sure there are  
others. Anyone have any suggestions?
