[Box Backup] User interface

(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.
