Just as a side note to this. The Simply Restful plugin for Rails,  
which will soon become part of Rails Core, has gone with the  
following scheme:


...so not /person/1. By using only the collection name, and not the  
member, we get a single URL hierarchy, which is hackable (remove the / 
1 to get the index).
