(I'm new to the list, so maybe this was already discussed...)
I recently did some web-based data management stuff using PHP with data 
stored in MySQL. It is quite easy to do, and maybe would be a good 
interface for boxbackup. Even though it's a bit of overhead if the 
server doesn't already have PHP+MySQL, it is an easy to make and 
maintain user interface, especially for cross-platform use.

One thing we need is support for laptop users who often will take the 
laptop home every night, often when working on something important, and 
want to be able to verify when the last backup occurred, as well as 
being able invoke a backup.
