Whether or not you are a believer, it seems like a perfect testing ground
for RDF ideas. For instance: what would a generalized RDF editor look
like? Presumably, it would be suffice as your preference file editor for
"experts" (at computing in general, not XML/RDF in specific). It would
probably look vaguely like the Windows registry editor, but do something
more sophisticated with embedded strucutures and links.

also voted to release the report that reads like a borderline por-
nographic dime-store romance written by a Texas preacher's son?
