Yep, that appeals.

Maybe a good place for me to sneak in a hobby horse of my own ;-) Edd 
was kind enough to link in to my general-purpose project vocab efforts 
[1] in the ibm docs, and I've been trying to think of the best way of 
tying it in to DOAP. Pre-DOAP I was imagining the definition of a 
software project as being quite a specialization, though having just 
used the DOAP-a-matic to create a project profile for my blog, rather a 
lot of it is directly reusable in other domains. For my own stuff I was 
after a common vocab whether it was a software project, building a house 
or feeding the cats. The idea being that the same tools could be used 
for project management, whatever the project. Keying into the web could 
make resources more available/sharable, RDF and OWL provide convenient 
representation and inference capability. Ok, so what I'm *really* after 
is a tool at which I can throw all my to-do lists, goals and dependency 
relationships and it will tell me what little thing would be the best 
next half-hour action. I have (more than once) started code for this, 
but keep finding myself short of time to take it forward. Catch 22 and 
all that. Suggestions welcome ;-)

Hmm, more than a seeAlso? What if some of the nodes were the same: 
people involved, places, even dependencies and goals - wouldn't that 
make (discoverable) associations?
