Sikuli: the coolest Python project I have yet seen...

OK, here's an idea. I used to do screen scraping scripts and run them
as CGI scripts with an HTMl user interface. Why not run Sikuli on
Jython on a JVM running on my server, so that I can do my screen
scraping with Sikuli? I can take user inputs by using CGI forms from a
web client, process the requests using a Sikuli script on the server,
and send the results back to the web client.

This sounds like fun to me, and easier to highlight and capture the
appropriate screen information on targeted web sites using Sikuli than
to hand code location information or even using Beautiful Soup.
