find the preset label in a line containing hasLabel. look on the left
and read the genid. remove all lines for that genid.

about RDF: yes, we could use a very very very much simpler syntax in
this file. but ... there are things where i defer to your expertise
because i believe you know better than anybody else i know. about
writing files that contain semantically-related information, i trust
people who have spent years working on such things, and their
solution, at this time, is overwhelmingly RDF-like. i don't like this
syntax, its grotesque and ugly and complex. but it has properties that
cannot easily be obtained from the "standard text format" typicall
used by unix programs. what is required here is not a new format, but
an easy way to do the deletion (or rename, or whatever) from within
