Count me in! :-) Is there some documentation available that I could
take a look at?

Comments for this framework:
- dynamic addition of icons
- dynamic extension of the ontologies (adding projects and actors)

Currently, not knowing any better, I modified the owl files and icon
properties files that Kepler comes with.
