I'm looking at the XML at that URL, and each friends has a rdf:nodeID, 
e.g. <foaf:knows> <foaf:Person rdf:nodeID="craigdibble">...

Which looks like a unique string id, except that it in that document is 
always the nickname, which I would not say is guaranteed to be unique. 
What happens if two friends have the same nickname?
