Okay, I took a prolonged peek at the code.  SirPac is responsible for
doing the fetching of schemas, however the version of Silri that I have
(1.1.1) is passing the false flag, which causes it to not be fetched.
After changing it to true, I noticed that a) schemas really were fetched
and parsed, b) silri no longer printed its triples, c) it did not issue
any warnings or errors if you put things in the rdf that were not
defined by the schema, ie, the schema was not used for anything.

I would really like to use this stuff for validating RSS files that we
receive from the internet.  That will allow us to more easily extend our
format, etc.  (Right now we are using a python-based xml validator that
is not RDF-aware, with custom logic for each tag.)  Does anyone have an
ETA for when basic validation should be working?  Or even some pointers
as to how I might best go about enabling it?

thx.
