It might not ... I haven't tried bbfetch myself, so I cannot say.
But it would probably be pretty easy to come up with a script that
picks up the status-files that bbfetch collects, and sends them off
to the Hobbit daemon via the normal Hobbit "bb" command.

I have some ideas for a Hobbit client, and yes - making it work in
both a "push" (normal client) and a "pull" (bbfetch style) setup
it necessary.
