I don't disagree, but how do you see it being "very important" ?

I'll add a note in the TODO file in QaMoose, but as Chahine so eloquently
put it, we definitely need more developer volunteers.  I would suggest
starting a new thread on 'developer at arabeyes.org' about the technical
issues relating to this topic.

While on this issue, we are also seeking a means of retaining a list of
all Arabic words (for our ispell and spell-checker project).  The 'dict
protocol' could certainly provide a wider means to have more people
participate in building that word-list (ie. not only computer and/or
technically related terms that concern QaMoose), any thoughts ?
