The 1-minute motivation:
I think that navigating from one file to another using a CVS tree browser like ViewCVS, bonsai, CVSWeb, etc. is rather cumbersome. When I come across an identifier I'm not familiar with in one source file, I go look for the source file that defined it. By the time I get there, though, my train of thought has usually lost some momentum; sometimes, if I'm chasing a thread of 5 or 6 different files, I totally lose track of what I was after. :-P°°°
The idea is to maintain some visual context across those transitions, and also to keep the directory structure in memory on the client side so that it's quick to navigate. Also, <back> and <forward> move you between the files that you're interested in, rather than the directory listings.
There's also some server-side perl to generate the rdf.
To come (n.b.: bug pages)
There's a short description of the UI on the screenshots page
