gnome kstats

From the department of <Projects I Wish I Had Time To Work On> comes  this gem. There are jillions of  clever applets that I can put on the Gnome panel, and there are lots of APIs (perl, java, etc) that I can use to access Solaris kstats. So why hasn't anyone put the two together yet? There's even a GUI available for kstats. It would be cool to start with some other charting applet (like this one), or you could start with the System Monitor applet that's already there. and hook it up to to kstats data from the Solaris kernel.  It would really show of the observability features of Solaris in a way that the average user can understand.

Interesting idea, any idea how hard it would be to do.

I think it would mostly depend on the level of familiarity with the GUI toolkit.
