Billion-triple store

How would I store a billion triples with Erlang?

I don't necessarily need the full power of RDF as storing triples in  
the form of {"Joel", has_a, daughter} would suffice. I would not mind  
complying with RDF of course but it seems that would be an extra  
burder due to the necessity of storing everything as strings, the  
need to implement tries for those and the way Erlang stores strings.

I'm not sure how to go about storing a billion of such triples in  
Mnesia. I suppose I would need to use a 64-bit machine and a  
disc_only_copy table.

Any suggestions?

	Thanks, Joel
