LSID support for Bio2RDF

From release 0.3.2 of the Bio2RDF Servlet, any URI similar to http://bio2rdf.org/namespace:identifier will be accessible using its equivalent LSID, with http://bio2rdf.org/ as the proxy, using http://bio2rdf.org/urn:lsid:bio2rdf.org:namespace:identifier . The LSID syntax will not be available for use with custom services such as http://bio2rdf.org/links/namespace:identifier or http://bio2rdf.org/search/searchterm.

This will NOT become the standard identifier, but it provides compatibility with some users who wish to utilise LSID's.
