That would be a nice addition. And not just for the non-green page. It would be nice for all pages, and propagate up to the top.

I think what Christian is asking is more for having bkg-red.gif and
bkg-red-ack.gif as backgrounds, similar to how individual tests are done.
Xymongen would correlate everything on a page (and sub-pages) together,
and if there were red alerts, but everything was acknowledged, a
bkg-red-ack.gif would be called instead (which could then be replaced with
orange in their case).

It's an interesting idea, but I don't believe there's a way to do that
with the existing release. A patch to xymongen would be needed.
