Great, thanks for that Matthew.

+1 to getting tests/samples. I am guilty from the point of view of

The restrpc binding is a bit of an oddity. It is indendened to support
rpc style interactions over technologies usually associated with rest,
i.e. HTTP. This is a style of service provision that seems to be
popular as an alternative to SOAP/XML style services. We do need a
restresource binding also and this would be completely separate. Maybe
restrpc is the wrong name for it?

+1 also to the doc reorg. I believe several people have commented on
the amount of online information in the docs. Simple is good:-). We
should maybe also try to fill out some of the tutorial/getting started
information on the web page as an alternative to the user guid type
