[aida] A little GUI app to start/stop Scribo, any takers?

I just had a thought.

What if we simply put an always running AIDA/Scribo admin web page on an 
uncommon port. This way if the setup is running headless or on another 
machine an admin page can be always available to start and stop 
AIDA/Scribo sites and apps as desired.

This admin should always be on and running and independent of any other 
AIDA/Scribo site or app. It should be aware of all AIDA/Scribo sites and 
apps that are installed or available to be installed and configured.

This way the UI is put into skill set of those who use and develop 
AIDA/Scribo and would also be available to any of the Smalltalks running 
AIDA/Scribo. It could be built to handle any and all website 
administration, installation, configuration, etc. functionality the 
community wants.

Just wanted to put that out there.
