yes, and most often the best moment for feature requests is when there are 
active changes currently done :)

I mean XML with informations about the file, for exemple containing
its author's name, its release date, its title, its url, the different 
cathegories it belongs to, its keywords, its popularity, etc...

On other websites there are RDF and/or RSS, but it doesn't contain all the 
informations i can get with a web-crawler script to browse the web-sites...
