If there is any interest in a framework that could provide the underlying

Oooh! Oooh! One more: build in a window with a python prompt
that connects straight in to a ZEO debugging session (
(possibly remotely).
Okay, I added some features to the mockup:


Now the right-hand panel is a scrolling window with expand buttons to the left of each process being monitored. That way, this little GUI can scale up to monitoring large clusters or many independent Zopes. I also added a "debug" button to one of the ZEO clients, which would open a Python prompt in a window.

I imagine that the interface to the backend would be a TCP connection with simple text commands and asynchronous replies. Using TCP this way makes it possible to use either a local connection or SSH to connect to the server being monitored.

As for PyQT vs. wxPython, either one is fine. I also lean toward wxPython, partly because its license is simple.
