I am working on a javascript version of the hypergraph
similar to what you suggest. The key advantage of a javascript
implementation is that I can embed it in the new Axiom Firefox
browser front end. This will allow me to dynamically look up
information during the graph traversal.

In addition, by associating a "facet" with each node in the graph
structure I can use the same code to navigate the "crystal" interface.
The hypergraph mobius transformation allows me to model the whole
surface as a multifaceted crystal structure.

I'm trying to figure out how to do mouse-over menus so you can
choose the information you want to see about a category. I also
want to be able to change the graph so you can see other relations
(such as coercions) rather than just inheritance.
