Import/Export with other CMSs?

[Some questions/suggestions that are kinda late in the game, but coming from research I've been doing today....]

To what extent is this API intended to facilitate data exchanges between Drupal and other CMSs?

Have you seen the Portable Site Information PSI specification, http://psilib.sourceforge.net/? It sets out a generalized XML interchange format for CMS data (and provides some tools written in Python). Would it be useful to consider this as a basis for the Import/Export XML format?

A potentially useful reference is the Exorcist softare produced as an offshoot of the Midgard CMS, http://www.midgard-project.org/documentation/exorcist/. It provides a general toolset for data exchanges between CMSs (in Java).

I would like to introduce you to a php voting API that I wish to develop further and for which I'd like to create a Drupal module. It is a complementary alternative or even replacement to the Drupal voting API.

Please, don't consider having a heart attack just yet. Please, read further and decide later.

Allow me to start from the beginning...

A world of alternative voting systems

It is a sad fact that for most people, whenever they think about voting or election, they can only think about what is known as "plurality voting", the voting method whereby you can only select one choice among many. Unfortunately, this voting method is demonstrably very bad.
