>> Since the last version there are a number of changes, I've fully rewritten the definition of Literal to reflect current conversations, GraphLiteral/TripleSet is gone, a couple of changes to the Graph interface ('the' is gone, 'match' is added, 'removeMatches' is added), RDFNode equality is redefined and clarified, a 'toValue' method is added to RDFNode (particularly for working with Literals), lot's of clarifications and cleanups to the text, issues and notes added etc.
