If you've started duplicity from the command line then you'd not need a GUI to 
monitor it, no?

also, if it started from cron and you piped output from duplicity into a helper 
applicaiton you
would be able to monitor it as your helper application would know how to talk 
back to your GUI.

You could think of the helper applicaiton as a translator for XML -> dbus??

A suggestion could be that a default xml output is displayed as soon as 
duplicity startsdisplaying
information about the process i.e pid, command options etc. This way the helper 
would know more
about what its watching and be able to display such information in the GUI.
