Naming tricky.

The webstorage nameing seems to have some traction setItem / getItem (
http://dev.w3.org/html5/webstorage/ )

I thought something like:

rdf base "http://melv.data.fm/test.ttl#me"

then

rdf setItem foaf:name Melvin
rdf getItem foaf:name

Or perhaps instead of base the command can take an optional URI as the
last param.

A bit like rapper -g (guess mode) perhaps the script can make a good
guess as to whether this is an xsd:string or URI

Something along those lines I think would be a convenient way to
program the readwrite web from the command line, can be extended to
include your cert etc.

Thoughts?
