geo plugin collecting data for sparql plugin

In the mashup help page for the SPARQL plugin, I describe a manual procedure to collect external data. It is a tedious task and probably too technical for many users. So it could better be automated. As the geo plugin already uses geonames, it could do the first step. I made a start with the next steps. Could you / do you want to build that into the geo plugin? Is the geo plugin aware whether the SPARL plugin is installed or not? Other  thoughts, objections?

Attached is my interface so far. I have not decided yet about a proper package name. It will need more options to decide what is wanted and what is not wanted from dbpedia.

On second thoughts I think it is better to have an export for the list of places  in a csv file, or whatever commonly supported format you prefer. It keeps the code of both plugins separate and the export might sooner or later serve other purposes. For me I need only the values for all jurisdictions and the geoNameId or geoNameUri.
