Features they are a springing (Ajax sneaks in too...)

Spent the day primarily on new-feature requests, including some very large next-gen features. One of them requires a rather involved, interactive process for defining limiting values, so I decided I'd try to integrate a Nevow LivePage into the web front-end.
