yes, that would be a lovely thing.  i'm
administering a website whose pages i
generate from content in the form of
s-expressions.  trouble is, whenever someone
in the organization wants a change, they
email me and i have to make the tweak and
regenerate the site.

so i've been imagining a sort of web-based
s-expression editor that people could use to
modify the site's content, while the scheme
code to generate the markup can change
whenever i want a new look.

not sure how/whether to integrate this with a
WYSIWYG approach (perhaps just "edit
content", "preview site", "publish").

you'd think someone out there might have done
this already ...
