One thing that doesn't seem to have come up in this mega-thread is how REST relates to
things like WebDAV (which adds a few more verbs to HTTP to make collections of resources,
lock and unlock resources, add metadata to a resource, copy and move resources between
collections). Also, what about things like the tuple-space TAKE operator (sortof a LOCK,
GET, DELETE transaction)?
I can see how to model these with REST, i.e.,a series of GET, POST, DELETE operations and
some logic to test for the existence of lock resources or metadata. But does bundling
these into sequences of operations that are performed as a transaction violate REST, or
merely extend HTTP?
Sorry if this is a painfully stupid question ...
