Dear Mark,

Sorry for the huge delay, it seems my spam filter thought your email was 
suspicious :-)

Anyways, the hash/slash subject was resolved in the following way: We 
decided to use a # before the word, because I thought it would be 
natural to group the words, synsets and wordsenses in different files, 
differentiating the base URI from the specific entity (word, synset) I 
want to reach. Also, for human readability, if I know that the word 
"computer" can be found


it is natural to suppose the word "computational" can be found


Finally I have added a JDBM version of the representation, you can check 
my web page at http://wordnet.princeton.edu/~agraves/
