Is there a reason why the graph URI would be the last element of the
tuple, rather than the *first*?  
 <g> <s> <p> <o> .
As the first element:
 - the graph URI would bemore like high order bits, so simple text
sorting of a quad file would group all quads of the named graph
together; and 
 - the graph URI would be easier to strip off when converting the quads
back to triples, because one could simply strip everything through the
first space on each line -- a very easy sed script.
