This is interesting. Given this, and the fact that Eikeon has already done
the work for RDFLib/ZODB integration, it sounds like a good way to go now.
I'll watch closely. I've long wanted to find a good way to find some
collaboration between 4RDF and Redfoot, and this might be the right focal
point for it. Probably all I need to do is write a 4Suite driver for
RDFLib-in-ZODB data. My main worry about this is that it seems RDFLib does
not provide some sort of context/scope extension to RDF. We've found this to
be essential in 4Suite, and very important for practical RDF apps.
