Here's a quick example of this feature in action. First, let's build
Oak trunk and start the standalone jar:

    $ mvn clean install
    $ java -jar oak-run/target/oak-run-0.3-SNAPSHOT.jar
    Apache Jackrabbit Oak 0.3-SNAPSHOT
    Starting an in-memory repository
    http://localhost:8080/ -> [memory]

Then, in a separate terminal I'm using the HTTPie tool
(http://httpie.org/) to access the server:

    $ http -u -b http://localhost:8080/

    $ http -u -b http://localhost:8080/ test:={}

    $ http -u -b http://localhost:8080/test

    $ http -u -b http://localhost:8080/test a=x b=y c=z

    $ http -u -b http://localhost:8080/?d=2

    $ http -u -b http://localhost:8080/ test:=null

A lot of things still don't work as expected, but the above should
give a rough idea of the possibilities.
