I respectfully disagree, John...  I think Monowall should provide as
easy-to-use and as polished of an interface as possible...  

Monowall shouldn't be a project that just techie guys like us use.  It
should attract others who are interested in a hardware firewall.  I know
that when I first looked at a standalone firewall for home use I was
attracted to the Watchguard units because they were easy to use and had a
decent looking web interface.  Only after I got my SOHO6 I found out the
limitations that it has.  If Monowall keeps the interface easy to navigate
and use, I think it will only grow in popularity.

As for SVG, I think we should keep it...  I'm almost certain that the new
Firefox beta (1.5) has built-in support for SVG...  Adding SVG support to IE
was as easy as following the link in Monowall.  I think adding it to Safari
was equally easy.  (Though I think the latest version of Safari might have
native support, but I'm not sure)

I'd prefer to get rid of the graph entirely as well, and just provide
an SNMP mechanism to give back data values and traps as needed.
m0n0wall should be providing the minimal Web interface as much as
possible.
