GUI for the CSS validator?

There have been talks of providing a jar of the CSS validator, and this 
is certainly a good idea. However, if I am not mistaken, even with a 
jar it is quite difficult to install the servlet on a Web server.

One interesting workaround would be to create a java GUI for the CSS 
validator (a la rdfpic[1]), which would surely be easy to use on almost 
any platform, especially given how ubiquitous java is on the desktop. I 
have hopes that by making the tool more widespread, we could get more 
java developers interested, and hopefully ramp up the level of 
development and maintenance for the tool.

Do you think this is a good idea? Would anyone be interested in 
undertaking this?

Thanks,
