Uh, I don't understand.  Are you describing an interface client or a "system
monitor" that the administrators can use to easily monitor the MUD without
being logged in invisible... sort of an "at a glance" auto-updating system

If you are talking about an interface client similar to ZMUD or Pueblo, then
I don't see why you'd want to re-invent the wheel (unless you are doing it
because you want to do it better or something..)

On the other hand, if you are talking about a system monitor that is for the
MUD administrators which displays a constantly updating window indicating
stats about the server and players.. then that's neat!  I like it.  You
could have different tabs for different parts of the system:

Summary - Uptime, Peak Users, Current Users, Available HD space, etc
Players - Online Player List with Level (kind of a 'who' display)
Settings - well, settings and stuff... *shrug*

I suppose it'd be a handy utility to keep your finger on the pulse of your
system when you don't want to be logged in typing commands at the keyboard
to get that individual information... Heck, you could even have a "monitor"
tab that displays a scrollable buffer of shouts and gossips... but that's a
little too big brother for me (could be useful though if you wanted to keep
tabs on certain, ahem, problem players).
