cc'ing damian, who did most of the coding!

hi max
interesting idea, and of course the number of (described at any rate)
people on the photos is somthing we already know. we'll have to have a
little think about implementation - damian is probably the best person
to do that :)

several people have been interested in differing shortest paths, but
noone's come up with this idea, but I think you're right that a smaller
number of people is better 'quality' somehow, maybe because they're more
likely to know each other better.

I wonder if we should direct this to the rdfweb mailing list? (cc'd, I
