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). > The complaints about HTTP that you and Simon are making seem quite > vague and seem to me to be rooted in pre-judging rather than > evaluating. Try HTTP for a system. 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.
