Hi, Folks-

Right now, widgets gives us a good way to package collections of related 
resources.  I've heard other recent conversations about saving a Web 
page, along with all its associated stylesheets, images, scripts, etc. 
in a single archived file.  Is it worth thinking about how the two are 
related?

I'm thinking that a downloaded and saved file might reuse the widget 
mechanisms, but with an optional flag that indicates it might be opened 
directly in an application (like a browser or authoring tool) rather 
than (or in addition to) a standalone miniapp.

Regards-
