Yeah, I've gotten that, too. Usually,  tell people that we have a ruby
client which they can use, and the fact that they are going across a
REST API is mostly invisible to them.

There's a small amount of handwaving around the fact that you have to
run a server - hoepfully we'll have public Deltacloud instances one day
to moot that concern.

I don't want to go that way - we should stress that the value of
Deltacloud lies in (a) the REST API and (b) that all the heavy lifting
is done on the server, keeping the clients very simple.
