I'm looking at the possibility of using fluidinfo as a backend store for 


Although the code itself isn't open source, fluidinfo runs a freely 
available database for people to store tagged data on any type of object 
(which could certainly include annotations on web sites). The framework 
is pretty extensive and seems to be a potentially good fit for use with 

I was wondering whether there might be some interest among folks here to 
see a fluidinfo back-end for annotator. Also, I'd be curious if there 
might be any interest in leveraging fluidinfo's capabilities further -- 
for example, if a user has added other tags on fluidinfo to a web site, 
such as a rating, would it make sense to display that rating alongside 
any annotations that they may have made?

I recognize that there's probably some overlap in functionality here as 
well, and there may be some divergent approaches. But I wanted to ask 
whether there might be enough of a complementary capability set between 
fluidinfo and annotator to investigate some integration possibilities
