Thanks for the reply Scott.

I would be the first to admit it is a niche, but here would be a few
scenarios where I can see this as useful.

- Collection of distributed plant information from the web into larger
plant databases.
- Plant catalogs can be published by retailers and the information
about what can be bought where, can be easily aggregated.
- Building up personal catalogs of plants, so I can have a customized
view on my own plants that I grow, telling me more about them.
