Hi Andy,
Welcome!

Yes, I've been meaning to add the wikidata data for a while.
But sort of putting it off because the current machine is past its last legs., and the software it runs on is no longer supported.

I'm very happy to work more closely with wikidata - there will be a lot of stuff I have that isn't there.
Partially because we have been around for so long, and a lot of URIs have died; see, for example
http://sameas.org/html?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fdata.kasabi.com%2Fdataset%2Fchembl-rdf%2Fchemblid%2FCHEMBL13296
I consider dead URIs are still useful, certainly fro lookup.
Also, I cast the net quite wide (high recall, low precision) for the main sameas.org store, since it is a search mechanism.
I suspect that this might cause problems for putting stuff into wikidata.

Thanks for your message - I feel encouraged to do the work :-)

Hugh
