I find it looks beautiful and very useful.
Well done, I really enjoyed it.
Some of the ideas you mentioned are discussed from time to time and the
project will very likely develop in that direction.
In principle there are two approaches: 1) Generate output from the client and
further process it. 2) Work on the client(s) to make their output better.
I think in general the development will drive in the direction of the latter
option. That means, e.g. sql 'from the source' and not generated out of the
xml report; protocol changes (are underway) to query useful information
directly, etc. We have quite some good ideas, but we sure can need more.
Please (feel free to) join the irc channel
(http://openvas.org/online-chat.html), most developers hang out there during
european day time.
