That would certainly be nice.

I was hoping somebody who more regularly does GUI work would like to
write it if I provided an API and example. :-)

I'm not so sure burning lots of cycles running a GUI when you're
trying to compile quickly is a good idea, but perhaps people will find
it amusing.  I guess something simple won't hurt too much.

Another thing that I thought might be cool would be for a network
monitoring tool like Netsaint to keep track of build machines that are
up.  I think just checking that the port is open should be enough.

Something like the Incredibuild interface showing a kind of Gantt
chart might also be nice.
