Just a quick note as explanation: I generate these dialog maps using
QuestMap, and export them using a tool I wrote called perlIBIS:    (04)

When I get around to it, I'll modify perlIBIS to support Compendium's
draft DTD as per Simon's comments, although if someone wants to beat me to
it and make the modifications themselves, feel free. :-)    (06)

I'd love to get my hands on Mifflin and use it instead of QuestMap.  Any
progress on making this open source?  Is there any way I could get a
license for it in the interim?    (08)

This is my ultimate goal: an integrated dialog map/unstructured discussion
system.  The evolutionary path is to develop a Web-based dialog mapping
app as well as a link database to link the unstructured and structured
dialog together.  This would be greatly facilitated if Mifflin were open
source.    (010)
