Analagous to composing a webpage that imports other pages via frames, is it possible to write a page that imports
specific functionality and i/o from one or more existing ASPNET apps? In other words, how can I go about "mosaicing" existing ASPNET pages into new forms -or- create "views" of existing ASPNET apps (preferrably without having to wrap them in MVC projects)?

on page, having "mosaic" effect :)

This software intercepts ASPX pages and applies XSL to reformat or refactor the gui. Wonderful!
