I think the GUI could add functionality as opposed to just emulating
the existing ones. When Pen Testing we normally run nmap several
times with different parameters set and we end up having to compare
results in each run.

Some suggestions for the GUI would include:
- - Store scanning scripts that could save settings and parse results
in search of specific results, so that findings and warnings could be
- - Have some common scan scenarios predefined as scripts, like:
firewall testing, IPv6 check, minimal paranoid scan, Windows server
full scan, Web Server check, etc.
- - Scripts should be able to call other nmap or external scripts to
make it extensible and enable users to build several layers of
automation based on previous results
- - Direct connection to databases for storing results and comparing
them over different tests or at different dates

I think these additions could definitely broaden the user base, but
even more important, they could help structure new collective
knowledge regarding best practices and new uses for nmap.
