It looks like Alistair designed semantics.py and semanticsxsl.py to be
used like a library, which makes sense since they are autogenerated.

So you will need to write a little script that imports the
semantics.py or semanticsxsl.py, gets the graph with the schema()
function from the respective library, and then does something with it,
like output it as n3.

So for example you ought to be able to put this script in the same
directory as semantics.py, and run it:

  import semantics

  graph = semantics.schema()
  graph.bind('skos', 'http://www.w3.org/2008/05/skos#')
  graph.bind('owl', 'http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#')
  print graph.serialize(format='n3')

The binds are in there so you get nice 'skos:' and 'owl:' prefixes in
your output. When you run that you ought to see pretty n3 for the skos
vocabulary :-)

I hope this helped.
