enable global friend requests
-----------------------------

                 Key: CLEREZZA-473
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLEREZZA-473
             Project: Clerezza
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Henry Story


Enabling friend requests to work globally, without the reliance on e-mail is essential for
any social web platform. Adding a friend, once the server has his WebId should be as simple
as:

  1. add webid to list of foaf:knows
  2. find if the known person has a ping endpoint
  3. ping that endpoint to let them know that one is pointing to them

The pinged person should on receiving the friend request be able to see a message with the
request, and decide what type of relation she wants to have with the original pinger.

A very simple protocol for this is described here http://www.w3.org/wiki/Pingback
