SUSHI as webparts

It would be great if SUSHI were a part of SharePoint. Is there a reason these pieces of functionality are created as desktop client instead of web parts?

The functionality of SUSHI could certainly be used in webparts. I upload the source code so that others can do this as they need to. I realize that because SUSHI is a desktop client, it is only available to a limited set of administrative users, but the reason SUSHI is written as a desktop client is for several reasons:
- rich client interface: it is easier to build a responsive, rich client interface with a win-forms application than a web application
- SUSHI runs a security report that shows what access other users have to the site, so you might not all your users running it. Of course web parts can be secured too, but
- I have more experience writing windows forms applications :)
- SUSHI is set up as a swiss army knife, by writing it as a windows forms application I am able to deliver multiple useful features in one application.
