I am really sorry to report that we don't.
We have php code that generates it from a CRS (Co-ref Service) (written by
Richard Cyganiak and Ian Millard), but it wouldn't just move somewhere else
as it stands.
I know Ian is working on improving it to deal with internal sameAs better.
Of course anyone is welcome to have that if it helps.

Aldo, could you generate voiD from an appropriate Google spreadsheet?
