I haven't worked on the project for quite some time and it was honestly
just a melting pot for ideas of how something like this might be done

I really do think that RDF is the way to go here. It is nice an
extensible which is perfect for storing extra pieces of metadata about a
task that might be useful in the final display of the task to the user.

The huge panel applet isn't totally necessary though. I happened to like
it as it gave a global overview of what was going on, but the system is
not dependent on it in any way. It just uses some widgets from averti
and reads its data from the sample daemon, so it could easily be
replaced with something that was much simpler.

I'd be totally open to suggestions for better/simpler ways of doing
this. In light of recent discussions I'd be interested in starting up
work on it again.
