There's _id when it's not supplied in a PUT, but that would be  
supplied by the Location header in the result. The more I think about  
it, the more I like this idea.

A lot more work on the client side though to deal with e.g. view  
results, and I wonder about the subsequent loss of convenience with  
e.g. curl in that context, although I must admit I'm no curl guru with  
multipart mime.

The project was so plagued by politics and ego that when the engineers  
requested technical oversight, our manager hired a psychologist instead.
