new package proposal: moodss

I would like to propose the following application for inclusion. All the required rpms are either present in the current Red Hat distribution or available on my homepage.
Note that this software has been running for 4 months already on a Red Hat 9 production system (more than 10 million samples recorded in a MySQL database 24 hours a day). This GPL software is used by IBM to monitor its Linux mainframe (see the "IBM e-server zSeries and S/390: System Management" redbook) and got an excellent review from Unix Review (further information with screenshots at http://jfontain.free.fr/moodss/).

Let me know what you think...

Here is a short blurb:

Moodss is a modular multi-platform monitoring application, which supports operating systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows, ...), databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL, DB2, ODBC, ...), networking (SNMP, Apache, ...), and any device or process for which a module can be developed (in a scripting or compiled language: Tcl, Python, Perl, C).
A very intuitive GUI with full drag'n'drop support allows the construction of powerful dashboards with graphs, pie charts, ..., such as one which would use the cpustats, memstats, apache and MySQL myhealth modules to monitor a busy dynamic web server. Proactive monitoring is achieved via a thorough thresholds functionality, including warning by multiple emails, user defined scripts, and an included daemon for background monitoring.
Finally, on top of real-time monitoring, any part of the visible data can be stored in a SQL database (MySQL, ODBC or SQLite) by both the GUI and daemon applications, so that, for example, complete history over time can be made available in web pages, common spreadsheet software, or presentations.
