Description

The default X.org interface should be a general administrative interface. It should include:

1. Adding users
2. Setting up network configuration
2.1 Wifi
2.2 HostAP
3. Configuring new USB devices

This will be a complex problem because:
1. It requires a display manager for user logins
2. It currently can't run from the browser interface with Javascript because we don't have a native browser working yet (see RM #172)
3. It isn't clear what UI toolset should be used for this: js+web server, GTK+, nodejs, etc.

If I can't get the browser working it's possible I could get node.js with an X11 interface running. nodejs is supported in Buildroot 2013.11 but it's unclear how much of my existing Javascript from the web interface would have to be rewritten. Then again, the fastest way with little ramp-up is to just extend bui-network-config or create an environment where it's just one of the possible tools available.
