Hmm ... since classified ads are the day job at present, I should  
look at that more closely. I could implement hListing quite easily.

As for software listings, I suppose it fits. My reservation is that  
is describing the listing and not the product. That's fine for  
hListing as a microformat, but doesn't address my theoretical search  

Perhaps we need some more specific product or item related format to  
nestle within hListing's description field.
