Here are some:

* Since librarian is intended to be for general consumption, maybe it
would make more sense to build the documentation using gtk-doc or
doxygen? gtk-doc isn't the easiest tool to work with, but the html
result is quite a bit nicer than what yelp gives you. I can probably
help you set it up if you like.

* I'd really like some man pages. I know rarian works exactly like
scrollkeeper so you can just type man scrollkeeper-update to get help
for rarian-sk-update. But in the future, when rarian has totally
replaced scrollkeeper, that won't work. Basically, couldn't you just
copy-paste the man pages from scrollkeeper?

Rarian looks really great though.
