Ah, no, I didn't notice this when I looked at your code. Skosify won't 
do any of this, although it wouldn't be too hard to add as long as the 
algorithm is straightforward, which appears to be the case.

Patches welcome :) The implementation languages are different so merging 
the code is perhaps not feasible. But the approaches in the code seem to 
be very similar (old-fashioned procedural RDF mangling, not any fancy 
rule engine stuff) so translating from one codebase to another shouldn't 
be hard.
