Sure. As far as the package browser is concerned, I wrote this AJAX
proof of concept:


It is a static HTML file, and yet it displays current information from
the buildfarm database.  It dynamically fetches data from the buildfarm
and fills the fields on the page.

Arguably it adds about 1s to the page latency, but frees the package
browser from the problems with local database schema.
