It is not exactly the same as PIMO:Person, you are confusing a 
representation of something with a class + algorithms to handle 
something. You might compare want to compare Folks to the library that 
George Goldberg was writing, but we have being waiting for this library 
for a lot of time now, and afaik the library is in a bad shape at the 
moment, George was planning to make a lot of changes to the library but 
he is currently inactive. Moreover you told me that we miss some major 
feature in nepomuk (watching for property changes) so that will delay 
even more the availability of the library.

I am not suggesting not to use Nepomuk, I am suggesting not to use it 
for _creating_ new information but just to _extract_ information created 
somewhere else (i.e. by folks)
