Hi Kingsley,

Ok, sure. But that task still needs doing. Ok, it would mean some
redundancy, but would there actually be any harm in mirroring the store
contents into Longwell which already has the facetted front end? The
only SPARQL needed would be:
CONSTRUCT ?s ?p ?o WHERE { ?s ?p ?o } :-)

In other words it would mean having one subsystem for information
gathering, another for presentation. It wouldn't by any means rule out
alternate presentation layers in future, but just seems to me like a
low-effort way of getting something reasonably attractive running live
at low effort, very quickly.
