I will git it a shot.  I'll need to get a local patchwork server setup
for testing (so far I'm just using patchwork.kernel.org for my
development on the client), so there might be a bit of a lag before I
post a patch for that.

Sure.  I'll try to add the backend and xmlrpc code for this (and test
it via pwclient) and leave any UI work to you.
