Being Java, Sesame isn't appropriate for inclusion into Beagle proper.
(IKVM or some sort of Java->C# translation might be possible, but the
former is a shim and brutal on resources and the latter isn't something
I want to maintain.)

I am really hoping that a managed solution like SemWeb will be adequate
for us.

Ah, ok.  I don't view RDF as a "format", since it has no real
representation (like Unicode).  I tend to think of it more as a "data
model."  How it is stored and expressed is where things like relational
databases, N3 and RDF-XML, etc. come in and are largely implementation
details.  That's why I was confused on how you'd be sharing the data
between components.
