Our motto: *you snooze, you lose!*
Every paradigm eventually produces a language which pushes it to its puritan limit; lambda calculus let to church notation, in which even numbers are functions; symbolic list processing produced lisp, in which even code is a list; OOP gave us Smalltalk, in which everything is an object; the stack machine model produced forth in which everything a stack operation is; the modifiable storage location paradigm produced c, in which even the memory after a buffer...well, you get the idea.
But until about a week ago, the RESTful paradigm had failed to deliver on this fine tradition. There was no language in which every object of the denotational semantics was fully first-class and REASTful, with its own URI and CRUD. But now there is.
You have been warned.
