There are three main methods that the library allows:
1. Given an RDF model, it just returns a string signature and doesn't
modify the model in any way.
2. Given an RDF document formatted in RDF/XML or Turtle, it adds the
signature using an XML-comment or Turtle comment as appropriate; given
an RDFa document, it adds the signature to a non-RDFa attribute on the
document root node. Thus the signature is inside the document, but
outside the graph.
3. Given a list of URIs which dereference to RDF graphs, it generates a
brand new RDF graph which lists the signatures for the RDF graphs.
