OMG What Happened to My H3@d3r?

Wow, read this from Scott Chapman which got me down. Yet another attempt to do REST from a Flex app with significant hackery bolted on, fails. I've said it before, when you are concerned with your HTTP headers, you are fighting the wrong problem. I don't spend much time thinking about my TCP window scaling, why should I have to constantly focus on HTTP protocol-level craps?

I'll say it again, someone needs to step-up and write an ActionScript HTTP client. Until that happens, the browser and it's FVM cohorts are the wrong platform for RESTful requests.
