I agree. That's the first thing I noticed when I saw TestMaker.

We had talked about making this project a plugin for Mozilla (FireFox). I've
been thinking about it for a bit and I have these ideas to hand out and see
what everyone thinks.

We should work off the original code base of MaxQ/Testmaker making it a
standalone program. If we record the tests in RDF/XML
(http://www.w3.org/TR​/rdf-syntax-grammar/​). We can then write as many
translators of the RDF as we want for whatever language/platform/format people
ask for. After doing this it would be trivial to write a Mozilla plugin that
would do this (since mozilla's XUL/Javascript plugin system makes using
RDF/XML datasources a breeze). That way we don't have such a huge mountain to
climb, and if we never get the mozilla plugin written we would still have a
cool/useful product.

So, this would be the first open source project that I have been a contributor
of from the inception. Where do we go from here?
