I've been using the Restlet API to work with S3, rather than JetSet; 
seems pretty good (i.e. it has the funny AWS authentication). The big 
problem I've found is that AWS auth requires the caller's clock to be 
close to Amazon's, and on VMWare-hosted images, the clock can drift 
enough for that to start failing.
