IceGrid Admin GUI for dynamic object adapters

I would like to see better support for dynamic object adapters in IceGrid Admin GUI. As it stands now, IceGrid insists on launching servers under its control. But there are processes plugged into the grid that have their own lifecycle like for example ASP.NET sites or desktop applications. Currently I can see dynamic object adapters registered in the grid, but I don't have access to their properties, metrics, and logs through IceGrid Admin GUI.

BTW, going fully dynamic is the way things are done today. Ideally, I would like Ice to somehow dynamically compile slice code (while maintaining most type safety in C#) and to register everything in IceGrid dynamically without any XML configuration at all. It would substantially simplify our code and deployment.
