[ppy] of course not, you are most welcomed, as this is relevant 
to our the community is working on. I just wanted to make sure 
you are aware of the ongoing "Database and Ontologies" 
mini-series, since that seems to be relevant to what you are 
working on as well. Do come join us at the future realtime 
sessions when you can, I am sure your input and contribution will 
be appreciated.    (02)
