recipients will be nearby here]

Six docs is brilliant, and I know you men (another story) well enough
to be I'm gonna appreciate this.

But this is scary - SPARQL 1 was stuff daft people like me could get
their head around in their sleep. Now it jumps into a Big Thing.
Absolutely valid, and I'm sorry I've not bitched about things along
the way. But it got Big.

Please please please do a cheat-sheet or something to take the edge off this.

No doubt implementers will know what to do, but when it comes to
writing some client-side code it's not so obvious.

I saw similar things happening from XSLT 1 -2, XQuery even, while the
experts can follow it, it's difficult for most people.

Doubt I've expressed myself very well - mostly I want to say congrats.

These are first reactions, so don't shoot me down too far. There must
be a way of placing this like lego.

I *know* SPARQL 1.1 will work, it's just how to put it forward that
worries me, could be wasted cycles if not careful.

et cetera,
