Probably dehs would not be a replacement to uscan. People don't even need to use uscan to track upstream. What dehs could offer is a consolidated source of information and a big picture. It can also be a source for information you don't directly handle or would be dispersed and hard to harvest around the net.
As a website? No, not really. It's slow and doesn't present any views on the information that are particularly useful and it's completely immune to shell scripting. A web interface would appear to be the wrong way to do this.
Agreed. Maybe dehs could provide information in a more shell friendly way. The web pages could just be a pretty view, used for occasional checks or big pictures viewing.
