One interesting thing about this sort of thing is, REST or no, you 
probably aren't going to do method-based dispatch on a server level, 
since it's hard to actually partition applications that way.  For 
example, you could almost put a transparent webdav layer on top of 
something else, except GET is overloaded, and you'd actually end up with 
some user-agent-based dispatch, which doesn't seem particularly RESTful.

But I can imagine using this deployment format as an internal format 
when setting up your otherwise-encapsulated application.
