well I've got a number of REST based services I should work on.
basically one of the problems with support of HTTP in most servers is
that Servers do not automatically reply with the correct status code
on requests, so they rely on the programmer to write that. This is of
course reasonable in a generic web server, but if one is going to be
writing a number of REST based services then I think the server could
be written to automate the sending of the proper response code

Using Mnesia should allow the messages to be enqueued on any node in the group, so I don't have to worry about things moving, or having to inform clients to connect to some other REST server node.
