hi 
 
It would be nice to have an index to all flags. 
Something like: 
 
<?xml verson="1.0"?> 
<flags> 
<country name="afghanistan" shortname="af" xlink:href="http://
www.sodipodi.com/clipart/flags/afghanistan" version="1.0"> 
   <licence commercialuse="yes" gpl="yes"/> 
   <author name="xxyyy" email="asdf@asdf.com"/> 
   <provice name="kandahar" xlink:href="..."/> 
</country> 
<country name="albania" shortname="al" ... 
... 
</flags> 
--------------- 
If this index is at the same place forever it would be possible 
to download all flags automaticly and generate icons for applicatoins 
at compiletime. 
 
It would also be nice to have an index to the application icons: 
http://librsvg.sourceforge.net/theme.php 
 
This could look like: 
<?xml version="1.0"?> 
<applicationIcons theme="Nuvola" version="0.01"> 
<group name="file"> 
<icon name="new" xlink:href=".."> 
<licence commercialuse="yes" ... 
</icon> 
<icon name="open"> 
 
</icon> 
</group> 
<group name="edit"> 
   <icon name="copy" xlink:href=".."/> 
   <icon name="paste xlink:href="...."/> 
</group> 
 
 
</applicationIcons> 
 
--------------------- 
 
I did a first release of that at: 
 
http://forever.datenkueche.com/clipart/flags/index.xml 
(no copyright info, no country short name, provinces and countries mixed, 
no author information,...) 
 
I also made a first release of an index to common XML informations: 
http://forever.datenkueche.com/index.xml 
 
And a list of counties: 
http://forever.datenkueche.com/countries/index.xml 
 
------------------ 
Other information I would like to provide: 
country: tax, number of inhabitants, size, path of borders, weather, political 
informations,... 
icons: application icons, themes, ... 
... 
 
At the moment I'm thinking about  intelligent versioning, wiki 
style interface to provide data and namespaces. 
 
It would be nice to get some feedback on that.
