Hi everyone,

Here's a sample of our widget gallery output from Wookie - again not  
as a proposition but just to share an example of the sort of content  
that tends to be included in these cases.

(Note in our system the client requests an instance of a widget using  
the widget identifier, which returns the specific instance URL - hence  
no widget URLs in the catalogue)
