I think both are useful. I don't think user interfaces that give you
notifications are a bad thing. It's useful to get messages out to a
developer or user of a single application. It's something we can do with
relatively little effort as we already have a user interface.
If someone wants to sit down and create a management tool that would be
nice too. We should definitely study existing sysadmin management tools
first though to see whether they have protocols we can support - I'm
sure this kind of problem has solutions already.
