Thanks for the update! I had hoped to get more directly involved myself, 
but life intervened. Some questions: do you have any sample packages 
available? it's a kind of .zip archive, right? An example with multiple 
RDF/XML files/graphs would be ideal. Does the RDFa-like syntax have an 
XSLT parser yet, suitable for GRDDL? Worth trying to recruit someone 
here to write it? (nice sized student project?).

cheers,

Dan
