hey again...

note this is not me being impatient... just thought I'd add some
info... we're going to need to query the captured info, and the more I
read, the more I think that this area (query) is what is the least
developed of rdf...  am I right in that thought?  I suppose also tied to
that is the issue of persisting captured statements... (to query)...

cheers
