Hi David,

I love it and I NEED it ;)
Awesome work, really.

I heard it will be opensource so I will probably be able to extend it
myself, but here are some ideas for (missing?) features:
* Importing custom Lookups/Dictionaries ( to go from text to IDs or
the other way around ). Maybe this is possible using a different hook
for the reconciliation mechanism.
* Related: Plug in other reconciliation services ( not sure how this
stands up to freebase biz alignment )
* Command line engine. To add a GW project as a step in a traditional
transformation job and execute steps sequentially.
* Expose Gazetteers ( dictionaries ) generated within the tool ( when
equating facets )

I have other ideas but I need to try it first it looks like you've
covered a lot of ground here.

Amazing, Amazing. Thanks!
A
