Sorry, but the documentation must always contain the names of the authors.
This is part of the license we use, and also part of appreciation given to
the authors.

There are quite a lot of changes already going on on the layout and internal
code. As you are probably aware, we require more than just the correct look,
we also need the code to be clean, functional and standard (W3C guidelines). 

The wwwredesign testserver is meant to show all layout as it is in-progress
and is directly connected to our CVS where we put the development on.

I'll try to comment on the rest at a later stage, busy currently (mondays
always suck).
