This has a high priority in our wish-list, but we are very busy
preparing a new kernel for WWW (you can call it WOW if you can't
pronounce that !), which features multiple TYPED links from/to each
anchor, so you can write knowbots for instance, and fast (we hope)
format negotiation between clients and servers.
The availability of this will be announced on the www-interest mailing
list. To register on that, send a mail to email@example.com with
body text "add www-interest". Your mail address will be extracted from
the From: field.
Sorry, no firm dates yet, but expect it by the end of the year.
