With REST, you're constrained to using methods that you could use on
anything. So "CREATE" isn't a REST method, because I don't know what
it would mean to invoke that on a URI identifying a stock quote.
This is a severe constraint on *form*, but does not in any way constrain
*function*. i.e. every problem has a solution with a system built with
this constraint in mind.
