Actually, Simon and I were much in agreement. at the lowest level... 
the system I built essentially did what he said, but instead of XML, 
used S-expressions. The "3 verbs" I refererred to were the 3 
fundamental building blocks of the entire system because these were 
the ways in which system state could be modified. In other words, the 
outer-most expressions always evaluated to one of the 3 verbs ,in a 
given context (this last part is important).

I have. 

My complaints with HTTP, and I'm sure Simon's too, are based on 
experience with both the standard, and implementations of systems 
using it... and experience with *other* systems.
