ok, I have clearly asked the wrong question :)
My use-case allows non-css people to set (for example) background colors in
a (traditionally) layered fashion (i.e.: the columns inherit/acquire from
portal, portal from the 'canvas' etc..)
CSS does this well, but I need to implement something of a more intuitive
interface (i.e.: nested), so I am looking for an elegant UI for (some of)
the vars (on very specific elements) and I thought this might already be
part of someone's cunningly conceived future plans.
I am really asking to be pointed towards anything that might already exist,
perhaps as a hint of what direction to take. (i.e.: should I implement a
folderish tree to model the 'layers' and vars, to make use of acquisition?)
