Best way to show plugin status

Hey all!

So I've got a plugin running which is implemented as an plugins.ObjectData

I'd like to present the user with non-interactive status panels when the plugin is selected, including:

* An 'is connected' status indicator
* A graph (messages per second vs time)

Does anybody have any hints / examples for adding non-interactive GUI elements to an ObjectData panel?
