I added a new Web service on pony to complement (and perhaps  
ultimately replace) the existing gate Web page.  I'd like to both  
review it myself and get it peer-reviewed before exposing it  
publicly, so I'm not going to document it in this message, other than  
to mention that it uses the revised gate API, and consequently uses  
the same set of codes as the gate's keypad.

I've uploaded a new beta of Noisegate which is a client of the new  
Web service.  It includes a 12-key virtual keypad for numeric code  
entry and submission.  It works.
