Sounds good.

Certainly.  In the sid framework, a gui frontend component can be
configured into the simulation just as easily as any hardware
model - even easier perhaps.  The GUI component convention consists
of only a few additional bits of sid configuration:

	# ... other configuration
	new hw-uart-ns16550 uart
	# ...
	new hw-visual-tk widget
	relate widget "hw-uart-ns16550 uart" uart

The key of course is the last "relate" command.   For GUI connections,
the "relationship name" is a two-part string, the first of which
identifies the component type of the target hardware model.  (This
way the GUI can adapt itself to several virtual hardware variants.)
The second component appears to be just some identifying text used
in the title bar of the GUI component, in order to tell the user 
which hardware module is being observed.

So all you need to do is to append those two lines of configuration
to your sid run, perhaps using two "-e '......'" options, or else
generating and editing a configuration file.
