To the best of my knowledge, no one has used KIF for anything, except
one experiment where KIF was used to translate between two specific
languages and a great deal of handcrafting was done on both sides with
the help of the language developers themselves.

If I'm wrong here, I would love to hear about fielded KIF applications
by someone other than the KIF developers.  If I'm right, I wish that
the KIF folks would be a bit more candid when they do things like
propose KIF for inclusion in ANSI standards.  It strikes me as a bit
pompous to propose something as a standard without its ever having had
an outside user!
