Display for "Total Amount Pledged"

As a tightly-wound, You Need a Budget junkie, I like to make sure that I have money set aside in a budget category to cover the total of my Beeminder pledges. It’d be pretty sweet to have some place I could look on my gallery, dashboard, or otherwise to just get the current total.

For now, I just get my pledge total via the bmndr command line tool and UNIX nerdery:

bmndr | awk '{print $1}' | sed 's/\$//' | awk '{total += $1} END { print total }'

But it would be nice to have a more direct way to get it.
