Me too, even though I'd love to have the Linotype backend as a 
REST-style Web Service. In my vision, the editor should just POST an XML 
document, using some well-known schema (say RSS, augmented with Dublin 
Core for metadata) instead of an ad-hoc namespace like 
"". Can we have this 
together with transparent upload of images? Well, I don't know, but I 
think I'm going to look into the code in a few minutes.
