My approach is to find all the THINGS with a  foaf:mbox_sha1sum and then see
what those things know, doing it this we way can ignore the type in the
code, it does mean that we use data of the slightly less defined THINGS,
however because of the foaf:mbox_sha1sum limitation on it being about a
foaf:Person, we're not very limiting by just looking at THINGS, and it means
people can use much neater syntax in their RDF docs, and I don't need to
teach my tools about subClasses.
