Great; are there some docs on getting that going?  I'm just curious
how it works.  If you're thinking about implementing a similar API in
PHP, you might want to look at the current API docs
(http://api.creativecommons.org), as they provide some information
about how we currently do things.  Note that in the existing case and
the new, proposed API, we'll just be wrapping an XSLT processor using
the XSLT in the license_xsl Subversion module
