I have not, but I believe you can call a script based on a condition 
with xymon.  Check the hobbit-alerts file for more info.  Big Brother 
was a monitor and notify system only, but I think Henrik wrote the 
functionality where you can call a script that will do an apt-get 
update/upgrade/dist-upgrade on your server.  In terms of having anything 
tied to the web gui, I can't say.  HTH
