OK, hopefully it won't be a big change. I had to use a vile CMS
at work that denied all access to the HTML or CSS, and that would
have been a nightmare to change, I'm sure.

Sounds like a good move. It might be useful to provide read-only
access to the configuration file(s) for this sort of thing, so if
CSS is not used directly (but generated) we can send you patches
against the proper files.
