Mnenhy reads and writes RDF, both to modify the old-style chrome
registry (Mnenhy Chrome Manager) and to store custom data in custom rdf
files (mnenhy.rdf, mnenhy-folderstore.rdf).

Mnenhy reads and writes localstore.rdf data to manipulate the XUL
persistance data *during runtime* to temporarily change MailNews display.

How? Custom RDF layer (mnenhy-rdf.js), XUL templates.
Why? For one, because Mozilla used it (chrome.rdf et al.). OTOH, because
large amounts of data don't really fit into e.g. the preferences system.

Feel free to correct my English. :)
