Note the requirement for RDF::Core, which is basically a blocker for
anything that is a limited shell account. Installing it is a pain: I'll
admit I'm not perl expert, but it took me several hours of playing
around on goathack to get it installed. The library itself is good
(though hacky), but I would not want to push it off onto Consumers as a

As much as I hate to admit it, parsing RDF with an RDF library in Perl
for something that's meant to be used "Everywhere" does not have a good

module would need to do (and is pretty easy to extend if need be) but
I'm not sure how easy it is to install an XML DOM module on Perl. Can
