David,

Not as aesthetically pleasing as it could be with a little dust-up but 
look at: http://demo.openlinksw.com/isparql . It offers SPARQL Query By 
Example.


Others: You may or may not know that we have a plethora of high level 
efforts for working with Linked Data, these have existed for a while, 
and devised based on years of experience working with ODBC and JDBC 
compliant tools atop RDBMS engines.

Links:

1. http://oat.openlinksw.com - OpenLink Ajax Toolkit (contains iSPARQL, 
FormsBuilder, other data aware libraries)
2. 
http://wikis.openlinksw.com/dataspace/owiki/wiki/OATWikiWeb/InteractiveSparqlQueryBuilder

In an ideal world, we would like to focus on the engine level work re. 
Virtuoso and ODS while the community tidies up many of these powerful 
Open Source tools and libraries that are intrinsically Linked Data savvy 
--  they deal with many tricky data access stuff already, but have some 
UI shortcomings and some stagnation induced bugs.
