Thank you :) A lot of the work required for such a system I've already
done while beginning to implement my proposal for a central
bibliographic database- [[m:Wikicat]]- and it could just as well be
adopted to your more efficient source/book-driven fact checking regimen.
If some sort of hosting/demo testbed were provided (*ahem*) it would
not take me that long to whip up a basic demo.
