Hi Tim,

The biggest APP user I know is Google, with practically all of its API
using the Google Data (GData) protocol. It's basically a extended
version of APP, most due to practicality reasons prevailing over
idealistic (i.e. "pure" APP).

GData puts some extensive stress testing on APP, i.e. Using advanced
features such as querying and returning different serialization
formats not just Atom+XML, but manages to adhere to fundamental
principles of APP.

Aside from Google's own "proprietary" auth mechanism (which I think
can be replaced with Oauth for general masses), I think Google's use
of GData/APP is a good example of APP in the real world.
