I would have thought a list for software that is closer to what you
are looking to design, such as Basket or Zim. But the other posters
seem to disagree with me and feel that your post is on topic here, so
you are in fact in the right place! I apologize for suggesting

Well, like you mentioned Basket would have been the closest to what
you want. I would suggest that you make a detailed list of
_specific_features_ that you would like to see added to Basket and we
can help develop those ideas into informative bug reports to request
those features. If you are of the opinion that a new application is
needed, then I suppose that a bug against kdelibs would be the closest
that we would get but it would probably be a long time (1/x as x->0)
until a dev picks up the project.
