Two observations;

Peter seems to know the difference between "reply" and "reply to all and then some" - do you ?

Secondly, you appear to answer questions with "well, Yahoo does it that way" and "well, Google
does it this way" instead of "well, I do it this way because ...". Why is this ?

For instance, to pick just ONE comment: "...REST is inefficient on large data holdings"
on what grounds do YOU refute ?

I am of the old (UNIX) school - many (maybe small) tools, chained together, are, in my experience,
WAY more efficient than a one-size-fits-all. I find it difficult, nay, impossible, to imagine a
totally "RESTful" universe. REST just doesn't answer ALL the requirements in MY universe.

My 2¢
