Similar to what http://appdb.winehq.org/ does for WINE, this would be a website that tracks compatibility (by way of user submissions/reviews) between any two pieces of software that have to interact. That way, if I'm considering using a new piece of software (say, the Ion3 window manager, or Windows Vista) I can check to see which applications work best with it and which ones to avoid.
