*Extremely* valuable.  I'd like to see Nmap get support for a database backend.
Maybe MySQL or even support for multiple databases.

With a database output option you could do things like choose to store the last
"N" Nmaps of a host and only view differences between dates/scans.  You could
query the top ports open across all hosts in the database or even the fastest
growing ports from the previous round of scans.

While a command line interface could do all this I think a GUI would really
shine with these features.  InProtect tried this but for Nmap it was very poor.

Instead of a dozen people working on a GUI for Nmap it would be nice to see some
of the work spread out and more features being worked on.
