Wikimedia (the guys behind wikipedia) are currently adding the API. I am 
currently in negotiations with them about an offline reader implementation.
As soon as we have some plan worth presenting (probably next week or the week 
after), I will post some details. All I can say is that they are interested 
in an offline reader for unix/mac/linux and they want to use KDE/Qt 4 
technology if possible.

Nah, this is also a good share of "our" (in this case: mostly "my") fault for 
not following up. I had no time to work on knowledge, but soon other people
might. I will keep you updated.
