Great idea! hdoap is microformats, though, isn't it?

If you were to use RDFa for this, you would simply use the DOAP  
vocabulary with the RDFa syntax. No "version" necessary.

If you don't mean microformats, then there are a number of RDFa  
parsers out there in various languages. I imagine all of those will  
output rdf/xml or N3. A quick Google search gives me:

- python: http://dev.torrez.us/public/2006/rdfa/python/rdfa.py

- python: http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/rdfadict/0.3

- PHP: http://www.avthasselt.sohosted.com/rdfamonkey/

- Java: http://sw-app.org/dev/RDFaExtractorCore.java

- Java: http://www-sop.inria.fr/acacia/soft/sweetwiki.html (bottom of  
the page)
- Ruby: http://code.google.com/p/ruby-rdfa/

There are more on the RDFa page in the ESW Wiki [1].
