The webgui is pretty much hardcoded within the mlnet binary. 
It would be useful decouple this a bit, for obvious reasons.

This is a large task, but here are some ideas, in order of difficulty:

- the various links to external services, for instance fake check buttons,
etc, can be placed in a ini file, just like "web infos". 

there would then be a syntax within the external url:s so they can contain
variables to be interpolated before calls.

for instance: http://fakecheckservice/$ed2khash$. 
this and other urls would then appear on the filew view, user configurable.

- templating system
for instance, ocamltemplate can be used to get the html out of the binary
into template files.

a benefit is that people with html templating skillsets are much more common
than people with ocaml skillsets, so wew could get more contributors.
