Wow these are awesome ideas, thanks! I don't use the web interface
much because I'm most often at the CLI anyway and ticgitweb was
written by another contributor, but I'll see if I can add these
because it would really help mature ticgitweb and make it more usable.
At present ticgitweb uses the Sinatra rubygem to operate but to be
honest I agree that something that could be run by apache or any
regular httpd would be ideal.
Thanks for the feedback, it is appreciated! If you think of it, maybe
try giving ticgitweb another go in a couple months to see if I've made
progress in a direction you like :)
