Yes, the number in the filename is a "foreign key" referencing into the
(text and tab) URLs table. This way you can see where the data was found.

I'm trying to export all the facts as one large RDF file. I used Jena ARP
and Sergey Melnik's RDF API, but with both I'm running out of main memory
while filling the model (i.e. before I can serialize it as RDF). Is there a
possibility where not the entire data has to be held in main memory? Maybe a
two-pass approach, where the predicate namespaces are collected in the first
pass and the data is serialized during the second pass.
