Virtuoso supports cursors over SPARQL result sets over SQL CLI's like JDBC
and ODBC.  There are extension data types for typed literals, distinguishing
between strings and iri's etc.  Then there is a Jena and Sesame compatible
wrapper that has cursors such as these support. 

I do not know of a cursor implementation over HTTP.  OWL QL specifies
something of the sort, though.

Subject: off-topic question on cursors

an off-topic (for sure off-charter) question:

does any implementation support some form of enhancement of the protocol by
something like cursors
to stream query results one by one or in chunks? If so, how does such
support look 
in current implementations?

thanks still for answers, if any,
