Code overhaul

It's been quiet for some time on the ontology online newsfront, reason is that we are performing a major overhaul of the java code. Currently, each imported ontology for which the content should be preserved as is requires it's own database schema. This imposes some strong limitations, and we are therefore recoding to centralise ontologies to one unique MySQL database schema, this is done by implementing ontology-specific namespaces. It will open up a lot of exciting possibilities once finished (which may take some time). Some
results will be a greatly improved search engine, the possibility to offer a lot more content, etc..
