I'm certainly sympathetic to that. Any ideas gratefully investigated.

yeah, that's what motivated this. pfps outlines a recipe and i need to
test my recipe against his. his target is ntriples, while i prefer to
map to RDF terms and count on the ntriples spec to turn escaped URIs
into IRIs.

the productions ref'd in⋈ are
from a yacker mockup of "TurtleS" (Turtle using SPARQL terminals and
productions, where applicable). it may still be too liberal -- needs
some thought and testing against bad-\d\d.ttl.
