Would something as simple as outputting information in XML resolve this one?

This could easily be parsed by a computer and contain any number of messages, 
formats, languages
etc etc. We could have an --xml-output option to activate?

You could pipe this XML output into a helper application for your front end 
that could then talk
to your desktop application via dbus.

i.e. duplicity [options] | desktop-dbus-helper

It seems to make more sense to me to keep things separate, no?

It would also keep duplicity small yet also allow this desktop GUI application 
to monitor more
than one duplicity server as you could pipe this output off the embedded server 
via SSH to a
central monitoring desktop system? :-)
