Subject: overview window/monitor like in GRASS & mapserver example

Platform: GNU/Linux/i386
grass obtained from: Trento Italy site
grass binary for platform: Compiled from Sources
GRASS Version: grass5.7.0

just a thought, nothing really urgent/important.  
When I gave the GRASS mapserver example a try I recognised the little window in the top 
right corner and wondered if somethink like this would be possible for the "usual" GRASS 
I think of two types of information windows, first a global one and second a local one: 
- one window which shows the extent of the whole region and marks the location of each 
mon x0, x1, x2 with different coloured rectangles -> global information window 
- one window which shows up with the area displayed in one monitor (full extend of raster or 
vector which is set as background image) after I zoomed in. -> local information window -- 
this would be similar to the GRASS mapserver overview window.  
well as I said before there are definitely more important things to do, but this one would be a 
nice little candy for GRASS user to keep track of the area where they area currently working
