Hello everyone,
Inspired by Brian's X2V[1] and Drew's presentation "Can Your Website
be Your API?"[2] I wrote µf parser that transforms any microformatted
web page to XML or JSON. It could be used as an API to any web site
with microformats. I hope now we could see some µf based mashups.

Characteristics at glance:
Supported formats:	hCalendar, hCard, hAtom, hResume, hReview,
xFolkentry, adr, geo, xfn, votelinks, rel-nofollow, rel-tag,
Output formats:		XML, JSON, JSON-P
URL:				http://microformatique.com/optimus/
Query parameters:	uri — URI of the resource
				format — output format ("xml" or "json", default is "xml") [optional]
				function — name of call back function for JSON [optional]
				filter — space separated names of microformats
						(default is "vevent vcard hfeed hresume hreview
						xfolkentry adr geo xfn votelinks rel-nofollow rel-tag
rel-license") [optional]

I happy to hear any feedback, good (on-list) or bad (off-list) :)
