My German is not as good as it used to be, but I think it should be
translated as: "it's about time!"

Have had further thoughts on counters in RDF. Given that SVG Tiny 1.2
supports RDFa, we ought to be able to do the following...

Page with hit counter says:

	<img alt="hit counter"
	     src="http://hitcounter.example.com/hits.svg"
	     rev="meta" resource="" />

And the counter itself is:

	<SVG xmlns="...svg..."
	     xmlns:co="http://purl.org/ontology/co/"
	     xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#"
	     about="#c(http://example.com/page.xhtml)"
	     property="co:count" content="12345" datatype="xs:int"
	     rev="co:counter" resource="http://example.com/page.xhtml">
	  ... whatever gubbins are needed to render the counter ...
	</SVG>

Who knows, I might even take a stab at writing such a beast?
