Yup, I'm sure, and I'm sure we have a lot to look forward to! :-) Right 
now, I don't require so much performance, but surely I will in the 
future. So, I'm placing my bets on you and the community as a whole for 
that! Importantly, by tieing things to SPARQL and the SPARQL protocol, 
everything underneath can be rewritten and optimised if need be. Of 
course, it would be desireable to have a standard protocol to add stuff 
to the model as well, but we can take that later. If there is a promise 
that things can improve, I'm perfectly content. And I'll see what I can 
do to assist.
