has anyone implemented SPARQL 1.1 yet?

It was very heartening the other day to hear that an At Risk feature
already had multiple implementations.    That makes me wonder if we can
skip the Candidate Recommendation phase.   Procedurally, CR occurs after
Last Call, when we're waiting to get two implementations of every
feature, and/or otherwise making sure the spec can be implemented
interoperably.   

If even the At-Risk feature is implemented, I wonder if that means we
have some folks who've already implemented everything else, too.   If
that's true, we could go straight from Last Call to Proposed Rec (which
then leads to Rec with minimal work from the group), skipping CR and
saving a 1-3 months.

If we're going to do that, or potentially do that, we should say so as
we go to our Second Last Call, which is part of why I'm asking now.

So, does anyone have an implementation that's feature complete for
SPARQL 1.1, or very likely to be by, oh, the end of January?   If you'll
be there except for one or two things, what are those things?

(Thinking about it, I expect we might have some problems with ER on this
front.  Has anyone been implementing ER?  Does anyone plan to?   I'd
expect Birte, Chime, and Paul might be doing something here....  Maybe
C&P.   I also wonder if anyone has implemented anything that consumes
Service Descriptions, but perhaps that's not really necessary.)
