Please ship the code, in whatever state! Ideally wired up to some tests, 
but anything is a start.

I wrote to the author of http://code.google.com/p/ruby-rdfa/ earlier 
today. No response yet. But it would be good to know what's been done 
already before people start duplicating. For example, taking one of the 
Python RDFa parsers (eg. http://dev.w3.org/2004/PythonLib-IH/pyRdfa/) 
would also be a reasonable option; generally transliterating Python into 
Ruby is relatively straightforward. But beginning from native Ruby would 
be better of course...

cheers,

Dan
