If there's good DOAP docs I don't know where they are... I should
probably twiddle lv2specgen to work with non-lv2 things and generate
some some documentation pages for commonly used vocabularies like doap

Anyway.  I didn't know about that predicate, maybe it should be used in

That doesn't seem like a proper usage to me.  From the doap vocab:
(doap:implements) "A specification that a project implements. Could be a
standard, API or legally defined level of conformance.".  Doesn't really
apply to a program contained in a project.

I don't see a more appropriate predicate in doap though.  There should
be a doap:subProject...

You could just use rdfs:seeAlso I suppose, though that has a bit less

P.S. You have a file: URI as the URI for zynjacku there

I think it needs to be supportsFeature rather than supportsExtension, I
didn't realize it until starting work on the tool :/

I'll put together something more coherent and sort out the vocabulary
tomorrow some time
