Tonto is not a bad word in spanish, is the same as you described for
english. I though you might have not considered it, but if you like it
and want to have presentations like:
"...well and then we have Roger Hyam who is the tonto ("fool") developer"
is up to you ;)

Ups, there is no format that we have considered. I was thinking more
in that you were gonna tell me that you will give an OWL and I was
going to have to understand it. But if you ask then I want it as a
serialized Python object :D
No, serioulsy, we have to think about this a little bit more.

well, there is already an outputodel format in TAPIR. I can give you
some examples of an outputModel for BioMOBY that is created from
Darwin Core concepts, or a GML app schema outputModel from ABCD.

[and a lot of arguing...]
Roger, you got me wrong. There is already an XSLT, made by humans,
that transforms ABCD 1.2 to ABCD 2.06. What I would like is a
repository that just stores these documents and if I a program ask
"Hey tonto! Do you have an XSLT to transform ABCD 1.2 to ABCD 2.06?"
Could say "hey, look! I am not so fool, I have one!" and the program
Actually I think this is the easiest thing to implement in Tonto.
