[uf-discuss] XOXO/Attention blogroll scraper?

There's been a flurry of talk surrounding the use of
aggregator-derived subscription lists as as a source of attention
data. Right now most of the aggregators do import/export via OPML.

But there is another source of broadly attention-like subscription
lists, people's blogrolls. As and when the blogging tools start
supporting microformats directly, these should be available as XOXO.

Until such a time, maybe someone has most of the code in place to
create a service that will scrape a blog, use heuristics to recognise
the blogroll and output this tweaked to conform to Attention.xml.

Just a thought ;-)
