A lighter-weight and easier to code version of this might be produced
directly from the current *Org Agenda* buffer. Ie, every time you call
org-agenda, or org-agenda-redo, you could build a variable that creates
this mode line, maybe in `org-agenda-finalize-hook'.

So long as you don't need separate queries for the agenda buffer and the
modeline, this seems like it would work fine. Then your timer could run
`org-agenda-redo', or you could just bind that to a key in the global or
org-mode keymaps.
