librdf_statement (an RDF triple) is barely more than
so the implentation of the methods are as trivial as you'd expect;
early on they were macros.
It might even be worth moving it to inline functions at some point.
But if it went to the object style, it'd be slightly more heavyweight.
I'm unsure if it'd be good to switch the style without new method names
