   <p><strong>Project Status (2006-11-28)</strong></p>
   <p>Work is being held up by four factors:</p>
   <ul>
       <li>The Treaty of Babel has essentially murdered our attempt to get RDF 
       metadata included with every IF game. The IFmd metadata specified in the
       treaty is utterly inadequate to Bookwyrm's needs, and always will be, 
       no matter what extensions are introduced.</li>
       <li>The need for a major redesign of the application, using custom RDF 
       datasources instead of the generic ones built into the Mozilla platform.</li>
       <li>The discovery that Mozilla's RDF implementation is no where near 
       standards-compliant. It's becoming increasingly difficult to work around
       the unimplemented and incorrectly implemented features.</li>
       <li>The possibility that RDF support will soon vanish from the Mozilla
       platform altogether. This would necessitate moving Bookwyrm to a different
       framework.</li>
   </ul>
   <p>I am not planning to abandon Bookwyrm, but all these difficulties and
   uncertainties have made me more inclined to work on other things as of late.</p>
