i'm not saying it's untrue, but it's something that can be easily
fixed. i've been working on something of that nature in python, but am
aware it doesn't fit the bill precisely. 

redland has all these interfaces, and even a simple component that
will load and parse rdf/xml docs, return triples or objects according
to simple search(predicate, optional object) querys and allow you to
send sparql if you want or need. this is how Class::Redland works

didn't Jim write a javascript rdf parser, a serialiser would be
useful, this AJAX idea is by all accounts very trendy, maybe a
javascript component interface to a restful representation of redland.

i'm not proposing this as the right answer / level of detail, and more
app components like scutters, aggregators, simple reasoners would be 
useful, but just to provide simple interfaces to produce and consume
data in RDFwould be as useful as a fuller-on application 'framework'
