Hi Richard,

I see the query, but that doesn't give me any clue as to
how you might represent things internally.  I guess I
misstated my question -- I'm interested in both the query
AND how it accesses temporal facts within an
established RDF-compliant tool.  Is it simple to describe
what the internal expansion of your query looks like
(i.e., revealing your secret for overcoming the limitations of a
triple representation)?

Cheers, Bob
