I took RAP, stripped out all the RDQL and database stuff as I wasn't 
using it. Same for N3 support. And all the documentation. Then commented 
out the relevant entries in RdfAPI.php. The end result was 144kb of 

But the real need is still for a compiled RDF parser as a PHP extension. 
And a corresponding MS Win Extension DLL. In the same way as xmlrpc.inc 
is great but the compiled xmlrpc-epi extension is better.
