RDF Binary using Apache Thrift

This is a binary format for RDF graphs, datasets and SPARQL result sets 
that is fast to process. [1]

    http://afs.github.io/rdf-thrift/

includes the on-the-wire description as well as an implementation.

Using Apache Thrift makes it considerably less work to integrate into 
existing systems and toolkits, or to build custom processing. [2]

	Comments and feedback welcome,
	Andy

[1] The largest gain is on reading data, with rates x3 faster than 
parsing N-Triples.

[2] Apache thrift has a large number of implementations across a range 
of languages: http://wiki.apache.org/thrift/LibraryFeatures
