I'm very glad it was useful.  I believe a current problem with the  
semantic web is that the developer learning curve can sometimes seem  
like it requires pitons and ropes, and thus faith enough to believe  
that the result will be worthwhile.

That sounds good.  Note that testing and retrieving triples using the  
Graph interface illustrated there would rapidly become very hard work,  
and for anything more complicated than SKOS you'd very probably want  
to explore using SPARQL instead (which Sesame supports, too).
