Your description of the wish-tool above reminds me somewhat of
TinderBox[1].  Not a perfect match, but close.  I've been 
following these guys forever, waiting for a windows release,
but no joy.  However, the newest version is made to run on OSX,
so maybe you could rig it to run over CygWin[2] ?:P?  In any case,
it looks like VERY cool software.  From their site:

"Tinderbox is a personal content management assistant. It stores your notes, ideas, and plans. It can help you organize and understand them. And Tinderbox helps you share ideas through Web journals and web logs."


"Tinderbox's agents automatically scan your notes, looking for patterns and building relationships. Agents help discover relationships and help make sure important things don't get lost. Agents are easy to make and easy to modify. They're flexible and powerful."
