Interesting, potentially useful for things like bibliographica.
Downside is it is written in Java...

Here at Epimorphics [1], we have been working on a new Java-based 
implementation of the Linked Data API [2]. I'm happy to announce 
a preview release of Elda [3,4], the Epimorphics implementation of the 
LDA, available from:


The current latest version is 0.9.10. The quickstart documentation
is at:


The Linked Data API provides a configurable way to access RDF data 
using simple RESTful URLs that are translated into queries to a SPARQL 
endpoint. The API developer writes an API spec (in RDF) which specifies
how to translate URLs into queries. Elda comes with some pre-built 
examples which allow you to experiment with this style of query and 
get started with building your own specs.
