I was looking at how something like this could be added in as well, but 
it'll be a bit of effort to convert it into the existing C testing loop.

It's definitely very useful as an add-on, though.

I think there's a lot to like in xymondash, but for the moment cleaning 
up the existing interface and making most usable to users and add-ons 
would be the priority.

Adding JSON output to xymondxboard (xymondjboard?) should be considered 
a priority, however. That would probably aid in interoperation.
