Hi Martin,

this is brilliant,

my concern however is that the semantic is dropped when you get to what
exactly you sell. I mean you do allow certain predefined categories but then
the description of what you actually sell is left to the text.

It would be cool to allow e.g. links to dbpedia for the kind of things you
sell. I am afraid as it is you get very very close to a great enabling thing
but might be stopping a step shorter? what do you think?
