[open-humanities] Parsing Wikisource bibliography pages?

Hi all,

Wondered if anyone knows anything about the possibility of getting
structured data from Wikisource bibliography pages? And/or whether the
new Wikimedia Deutschland data pilot [1] involves bibliographic
information on Wikisource?

It would be good to build on, and contribute back to things like:
http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Author:Friedrich_Nietzsche

I'm particularly interested in the possibility of using/building on
these bibliographies for OpenPhilosophy.org [2].

Also interested in whether there are any ideas about mapping the
titles in different languages. E.g. latin title, German translation of
title and English translation of title all refer to different
manifestations of same underlying work (or whatever other data
model...).

All the best,

Jonathan
