Hi All,

I've just (about) completed a Turtle parser which has brought the issue 
of RDF Collections, specifically Lists, to the forefront of my attention.

Currently I've resorted to taking the N-Triples approach adding the 
appropriate series of rdf:first, rdf:rest, rdf:nil to the store - 
however I'm very aware that in no way do we mark Collection as being a 
specific type of RDF Interface, nor do we provide any way to work with 
Collections/Lists.

So, in terms of the API, do we want to ignore that Collections even 
exist, or do we want to specifically address them by adding an 
RDFCollection Interface? (perhaps extending BlankNode and containing a 
sequence of RDFNode, the list elements)

Somewhat related to ISSUE-16 .

Best,

Nathan
