I'm not sure myself if it's going to lead anywhere, but people have
been expressing an interest, and having a working system available
should enable people to explore the possibilities further.

My SP/XML stuff, like the EARL, is designed to be a building block for
new applications.  And I hope that other developers will use it: if it's
only me, then I'm wasting my time.  The MSIE parser stuff is the
first application from another developer to go (more or less) live.

Yes, I imagine it would, since these are XML too.

I'm not quite sure what you mean, but if you have a nascent application
for anything at Site Valet, I'll be very pleased to see it.
