Another simple demonstration of reification.

Reification is the term used when one statement is the subject or object of another. It does seem to cause some difficulty in understanding.

This implementation takes a very simple view. A statement is a subclass of resource, and as such can be the subject or object of another statement. Further, it is possible for a statement s2 to be a member of a model m, to make a statement about another statement s1, without s1 being a member of m. This sample code demonstrates this feature.
