No problem with OO - I've actually expected this to be implemented as a class.

First impression is good.

Not sure about this one, but do we want to support more than one function
per scriptlet? Or would those go into separate scriptlets?

Also, what about POST requests? How do they come back into the scriptlet?

Outside of the webtree makes sense. Not sure about the database, as it
also beats the "simple installation" idea.

I don't really see any file permission issues. The scriptlets are
probably included(?) or they're simple .php files.

Anyway, not bad for a first draft.

bye, Dirk
