You can also write script which uses the bb command with the query
option (see the bb man page.  It will return the current color for a
host:test and based on that result your script can respond to the
situation which needs to be addressed.

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
