      see this new page. That allows me to inflict pain on testbed
      developers while we work out any kinks. These new pages implement an
      XML interface to experiment creation.
      
      Some new files:
      
      beginexp_html.php3: A wrapper for the actual beginexp form. This page
      includes the form, and then invokes the XMLRPC backend page.
      
      beginexp_form.html: The original form code, split out from beginexp
      and turned into a module that can be included into another file.  It
      is slightly reorganized to make it easier to include as a module.  The
      idea is that the plab_ez form will be recast in this model, reducing
      some redundant complexity.
      
      beginexp_xml.php3: The XML backend. The idea is that the html page
      packages up the form arguments as an XMLRPC message, and invokes this
      page with the XML goo encoded in the URL. It also passes along the
      uid/cookie so that the authentication happens properly (https of
      course). The page decodes the URL into PHP datatypes, and does much of
      the same argument checking that beginexp used to do. Errors are stored
      up in the same manner, but instead of spitting back html, it now spits
      back a "structure", encoded in XML so that the _html page can put up a
      new form. Basically, all output is sent back via an XML encoded
      structure and displayed in a form that the invoking script deems
      appropriate.
      
      This gives us a pure XMLRPC interface, which we wrap with a form interface
      so that it looks just like it did before.
      
      The next step is to provide an alternate front end, but that will require
      some certificate stuff that I have not worked out yet.
      
      Oh, one more item. The syntax check stuff has been altered a bit.
      Instead of invoking the beginexp page, which meant a zillion special
      tests, I now invoke nscheck.php3 directly from the button. Took a few
      extra lines of Javascript to do this, so watch out for problems there
      too.
