A pull down list of available rule files would do the job.  Eventually
you could provide a way for users to upload their own rule files.

The structure of the rule files are essentially pretty simple.  There
is a <rule> element that has k and v attributes.  For each rule there
is then some drawing instructions which say whether to draw a line or
a circle etc.  These in turn reference a CSS element which defines the
colour and size etc.
