Not to detract from the rest of this wonderful post, keep in mind that HTTP 
is stateless. That doesn't necessarily mean that it's useless for 
transferring data, just that it was designed to throw small data packets 
around without regard to persistence or reliability. If those are important 
to you then you have to design them into your package.
