Hi Denny,

You are correct that wbsetclaim can create a claim with a reference. You
just need to pass the entire JSON serialization of the claim, including
the reference. If you are trying to create a new statement, you will
need to generate a fresh statement id client-side and include it in the
JSON serialization.
