I had some inspiration tonight... a design for rules
came together:

	http://www.w3.org/2000/04shoe-swell/inference#

This allowed me to add support for shoe:def-inference in
	http://www.w3.org/2000/04shoe-swell/shoe-swell.xsl

TODO:
	-- slurp this form of rule into prolog
	-- compare/contrast with http://www.w3.org/2000/06/23-FOPC#
	-- go back and look at all the other
		designs for variables and rules in RDF,
		e.g. Jos De Roo's Euler stuff
		ftp://windsor.agfa.be/outgoing/RCEI/NET/euler/index.html

oh... that reminds me: this rule design relies on
reification, so I added a little bit of reification
support to my XSLT-based RDF parser.
