I was beginning to do that already... Using Tcl/Tk.

I think, if my Project starts, I will look for a Team to develop 
such tool.

I think, we need a too, which can control a Network 24/7 and with 
qualification for a Network Control Center

Security standard must be very high, because I need to control 
BGP-4 Routers and the Repeaters. Backbones between the Routers... 
detecting of broken cables...

Exactly a tool, which can control a national internet network. 
...and I am sure, that I can not develop this alone.
