Whiteboard

Beyond the usual items involved in designing and implementing a feature there are two particular open matters for this one:

+ it is unlikely that the horizon project would adopt this UI component for some time to come so the packaging and installation of it will need special care.
+ some amount of state should probably be retained to improve the user experience. Right now the command line tool uses the user-supplied prefix value as a key to the entire Inception Cloud. We may wish to be more formal to support a web UI.
