Hi Richard .....  like Alex said, there is no Rest api for RethinkDB.  The
folks at RethinkDB didn't want to expose the whole query language using a
rest api, (if i recall correctly they said it is too powerful to do
so)...so the driver only accepts queries via driver port and streams
resulting json and updates back to client.

My desktop client will connect to a local database which (will or can be
part) of a distributed cluster.
