I'm quite new to WebScarab (less than a week). I found it while
searching the internet for a scriptable proxy in order to modify/enhance
response before they reach the browser. or even create a brand new
response out of the existing one.

so, what I would like would be 1st not to remove the beanshell part, 2nd
have a debug interface to the beanshell stuff. 

oh yes another thing. the HTML view of a response is built as if the
HTML was correct. but there are zillions of buggy HTML pages in the WWW.
it could be great if WS could have (as un option?) the possibility to
fix this buggy HTML (only for the view) in a way quite similar to what
the browser do (ie. using TagSoup) 

I duno if WS has not been created with this use in mind but that's how I
use it ;)
