1) In Rails you work with "layouts" and it looks like the one attached.
So... modifying the standard layout and the style sheet would be quite easy.
The "yield" statement gets replaced by the content. Potentially you could
also use a very "naked" layout and put it in a frame or iframe as well.

2) You mean using LDAP for the authentication? Well, it would
not be a huge patch to allow for that. But you would still need to admin
users in the webapp as well, since you need to link them to accounts?
