Hi Kingsley, Michael & All,

There is of course the 10-90 rule for taking things from early prototypes
to industrial strength systems.  (You get 90% of the way with 10% of the
effort, but the rest takes 90% of the effort.)

Looking to the industrial future, there's another concern about SPARQL.
When a complex query is running, it may need to pull data from many
endpoints.  If one of these is down or busy, the query fails.

Is there perhaps some work already on automatic local caching, or on
seamless access to replicated endpoints ?

                                    Thanks,                -- Adrian
