This is very timely and may be very important for us.
I suggest someone, either you or Mark, should follow the
U1DB mailing list https://launchpad.net/~u1db-discuss,
alert this list to the potential for using U1DB for bib data and BibServer integration.
Hopefully we can find some programmers on this list who may be willing to code up some demos
for us.

A question for the U1DB list is what user interface tools they have in mind for managing local JSON stores,
and to what extent these tools would come with the U1DB.

Mark is supporting a planning area on the website which would be suitable.
Mark please can you advise how best to use?
