Hi Chris, thanks for the advice.

OK, will add owl:sameAs properties to dbpedia - we don't have  
wikipedia links for everyone, but we do for enough people to make it  
worthwhile.

The links to eg. wikipedia use the property <http://qdos.com/schema#wikipedia

subPropertyOf? I would have liked to use the FOAF site membership  
properties, but they're unhelpful for the particular data we're trying  
to handle.
