Version 1 of 3store was written in PHP+MySQL (for the reasons you gave),
performance was OK (few tens of milliseconds per query), but I moved to C
before I implmented RDQL queries, so its not much use (version 1 used
OKBC over HTTP, which is painful).

You're welcome to the code if you think it will help.

If you want high performance then porting the query translation code
in version 2 from C to PHP would be better, and not too hard.

If you have the ability to install binaries then putting a PHP wrapper
around the 3store v2 commandline query tools would be easy and efficient.
