I know that rubhub has parsed XFN, but it's the simplest of the
microformats, and probably won't convince a whole lot of people that
it's sustainable or performant. Are there others that we can point to
as success stories?
In a quick search around the wiki, I found something about parsing
hCard, but no code examples or links to sites doing it
