Hi Kingsley,

Yes we're aware of Virtouso. Our challenge entry actually works with any 
sparql endpoint. We just needed the whole BTC for 2009 and had been 
working with 4store. So given that we did this work, we thought we'd 
give it to the community.

BTW, is the openlinkwebsite down? I can't seem to get to it this morning.
