This would be very cool indeed. It would beat the crap out of *every* 
content editing system out there.

I'm afraid I don't have the time nor the heart to delve into a few 
million lines of C++ code ;). At the moment, I am just trying to make 
sense of XUL and XBL. If you want to see my latest experiment, take a 
look at my latest blog entry ( What I want 
to have in a short time is a minimal but extensible support for editing 
blog entries, not much more.

However, I am very interested in what you are doing. If I can find some 
time off, I'd be glad to contribute.
