I've made GetData more user-friendly.
In the examples below, 
"$ "   is the shell prompt, and 
"ke$ " is the MKE prompt.

Instead of specifying inverse flags
    $ GetData Person subClassOf no
    $ GetData Person subClassOf yes
you use appropriately placed question marks
    $ GetData Person subClassOf ?
    $ GetData ? subClassOf Person

You can retrieve all properties and values using
    $ GetData Person ? ?

The MKR equivalents are
    ke$ set echo=off, kbmode=tap;
    ke$ Person iss ?;
    ke$ ? iss Person;
    ke$ Person has ?;

The response is faster because all the Java programs
    mkrGetData.java
    mkrGetResource.java
    mkrPutData.java
are precompiled.
