Only one Mizar-PC

We got halfway through writing a Mizar-KNOW converter, and I hope this will
be finished during the next year

Any math-savvy hackers who want to take this project on, let me know. KNOW
is pretty similar to predicate logic (except it's term logic ;), so a
Mizar-PL converter would look about the same as a Mizar-KNOw converter.

Such a converter would allow lots more people to use Mizar in their AI work.
it would be a great public service. and I don't think it's all that hard.

If anyone's interested I can send them the code that the guy who was
previously working on the problem wrote (he was a contractor in Russia, and
quit when we stopped paying people..)
