Hi David,

Don't forget, we're talking about "intelligent defaults" not the  
"ultimate solution."  I agree the "@" is a bad idea, but I would like  
the RESTafarian plug-in to provide "best practice" implementations of:


implemented as partials (_dl, _ol, _tr, _form) returning  
Microformats.   Sure, the final design would probably tweak these  
slightly, but this gets you most of the way there and encourages you  
to make things as reusable as possible.

Does that make sense?  Is there a clean/easy way I could mock these  
up and submit them to your plugin?
