Well, you have some good excuses :)

Rory do not want monit to remove temporary files. I have no opinion
this way or that, what do other committers think?

I think that web-services could (probably) be used instead of
SNMP. When it comes to push or pull, that is, if a monit server should
push data to a central statistic/report gathering application or the
central application should pull data from X monit servers I'm not
sure. We have to think about this when we write up the design. The
push model is maybe preferable since the central application can wait
for incomming connection instead of knowing the address:socket for
every monit servers to request data.

Yepp, me too if I have to be honest about it it.

I have done lots of GUI with Java before (hated it) and as you say it
could be a nice excuse to try to write a GTK+ application. I prefer
GTK above QT since I do not know squat about C++ and do not plan to
learn it either :)

Yeah, that would be a good alternative. It's exactely for this type of
applications I have written the Zervlet system. But the thing is, I
partly plan to earn a living from the zervlet system and have thought
long and hard about open source it and finally decided against it.
It's going to be free for non-commercial use, but unfortunately not
open source. I have no problem about using the zervlet system with
monit, in fact I would love to do so, but I'm not sure about others?

Anyway, I'll summarize this discussion for the 4.0 release after we
have discussed it more and voted on it, and put it up on the monit
