Customizing UCS icon

Dear all,


I'm wondering if it's possible to affect how UCS
icon is displayed and if there are ways to customize it beyond it's
original purpose. I'd like to make a dynamical scale bar as seen on topo maps,
to graphically reflect current drawing scale (just like ACAD tray "Scale factor"
does, it's right to the Paper/Model button). Scale bar is more like a
visual aid, since it's not precise as present "Scale factor" but gives user a
better insight into distances between objects.


It seems to me that UCS icon is being
drawn using GRVECS (?), since it refreshes itself as user performs pan/zoom.
This should be a starting point for the tool's logics. Please correct me if I'm
