RF Power indication to allow Final output power readings

I know there are many things on the list before this, but it's fun to dream.
How about a provision with the RF Power indicator to get information from the amplifier, or a sensor after the amplifier so that the readout indicates your final output power and SWR readings.
Perhaps the easiest way to pull this off is an external network device that has input and output RF connectors and an RJ45; then the radio does the rest.

I do this already using a Wavenode WN-2d SWR Device which supports up to 4 sensors. www.wavenode.com

Oh, I've had Wavenode, and now have a set of W2's from Ecft. But it would be nice to see it on SSDR

Wave node rocks. I run the Wn1 because of the rate it samples. So good I bought 3 of them . I have sensor after the flex and after the Alpha 8410. Have more sensors incase of extra transceivers. Works great with remote operation controlling amp and antenna switch.
