Oh, it's OK with me. At least it made me check my installation.

Today I got feedback from Michael Kellogg, WR.com Administrator. He is
currently considering "creating an API for WordReference in the next
few weeks". He will inform me when there is a beta version running,
and I will forward the information here. He actually seemed somewhat
enthusiastic about Xfce4 Dictionary supporting WR.com, and honestly so
am I. Remains to hope you will find the time to implement the
discussed features.

Kind regards,
