NetworkedGraphs [1, 2] are SPARQL based views / rules for RDF developed at the
University of Koblenz, similar to SPIN, but more powerful. The implementation
evaluates rules on the fly instead of materializing the results. The
implementation currently linked from the website could use some performance
improvements. I have started working on a faster one, but it still needs testing
and debugging. Help would be appreciated. ;-)

I think there was a custom rules Sail based on SeRQL in some version of Sesame,
but I can't find it in the repositories any more.
