Excellent! This is exactly the kind of thing I was thinking about 
building. I've got an Amazon wishlist with about 1000 items in it,
and Amazon's tools for managing that just aren't up to snuff. I
really want everything in RDF so I can play with it in a retailer
agnostic fashion.

Dan Brickley's ruminations on wishlists really opened my mind,
though--wishes are a deeper subject than I had originally thought.
Although the way I personally use wishlists has less to do with
desires to actually own all those items and more to do with
a sort of bookmarking. I wishlist any books/music/movies
recommended to me (by real people) or that sound interesting.
If I find that I'm wishlisting something already in my wishlist,
I usually buy it.
