XSRQL proposal

I've finished my XSRQL proposal, which can be found at
http://www.fatdog.com/xsrql.html. You'll notice I've shortened the acronym
slightly: XSRQL stands for XQuery-style RDF Query Language. I hope this
latest addition to the query-language canon isn't considered overly XS-ive
(groan).

I'm slightly embarrassed; I've gone totally overboard on this. (If you
encounter graffiti in public lavatories reading, "Stop me before I write
again!", it was probably me.) In any event, those who don't have the time or
the desire to plow through the proposal in its entirety can probably get a
fairly quick idea of what the language is about by reading the introduction
[1] and then skipping to the section on the path language [2] . You might
also find the Examples section [3], which looks at several examples of code
in both RDQL and XSRQL, of interest. Once you've recovered from that, you
can go back and read the rest at your leisure.

I'd be honoured if somebody would volunteer to pick this up for evaluation
before the agenda deadline (July 7?). I'm around through this coming Tuesday
evening, so if anybody has any questions, either get a hold of me before
then or after I'm back from vacation on the 6th.

Ta,
Howard
