Tsssit Joshua do not make these kind of assumptions. By the way do you know
how to spell assume? (an old joke I know).

Sounds better now, thanks for the answer Joshua. Is RDF one of the format
supported as output or can I define any kind of XML ala Xquery or XSQL (and
therefore get RDF if I whish). This could get a lot of impact when
developing a synchronization application or using an RDF processor to add
value to the produced meta-data.
