xCAT has xcoll which collates all the input so you see each nodes output
grouped together, and condenses identical output into groups of nodes.

Now xcoll is an improved version of dshbak which was in IBM's CSM
and there is a version of that for pdsh output.


So if it's possible to hack that to pop up an xterm for each
nodes output then that might meet your criteria.

Best of luck!
