some time ago I was looking for triple stores that allow to customize  
the database schema, e.g., that allow me to specify something like "I  
want all foaf:Person resources together with their foaf:firstName and  
foaf:surname stored in a designated (optimized) table." If you are  
aware of any triple store aware of that functionality I would be happy  
to know.

Best, Bernhard
