we routinely feel similar needs.

My main concern is that from an api to a management tool there is a big
difference.  It might be difficult to draw the line, if any line can be
drawn at all.  In terms of usefulness and demand, I'd concur with you.
In terms of viable solution, perhaps you (we) should be more specific,
try to propose something that looks like a plan, and see how everyone's
needs fit in it.

My 2c for now.  p.
