Soren,

I think you simply need to tell Orri that Triplify is a PHP based 
mechanism for RDF Views  (or Semantic Covers) over Relational (typical 
MySQL) based data :-) In a nutshell, another mechanism for RDBM to RDF 
[1] along the lines of:

1. Virtuoso's SPASQL based Meta Schema Language for ODBC or JDBC 
accessible data sources (in addition to Native Virtuoso)
2. D2RQ's  N3 based mapping language for JDBC data sources
