Neo4J seems to have changed their licensing attitude since a year or 
more ago that I formed an opinion.
I have particularly tough requirements: I need a solution for (hopefully 
millions of) free client apps for mobile, desktop, local servers, and 
something very scalable for cloud / service / enterprise use.

Nice.  Can't beat the license.  I vaguely remember seeing the name, but 
probably when it was much less mature.

I'll have to think through the graph link vs. RDF-style URI 
alternatives.  Seems equivalent.  Have to look into mapping my extended 
model onto it.
