do much of the heavy lifting and am considering tackling the task using
Python (and maybe Amara ).
That said, if the data within a hypothetical microformat U can
represented correctly as a dictionary/map, microformat V as a list of (
key, value ) pairs, and W as some sort of hierarchy, I'd probably fairly
different APIs for representing at the data and composing the same
