Hi,

We are currently defining a new format for responses from the checkers 
(markup validator, css validator, ...). This new format should have 
enough flexibility to be used as an output of Unicorn itself, thus 
turning it into a RESTful web service (and allowing to call an instance 
of Unicorn from another one).

Regards,
Jean-Gui
