Mike (and others) you want three web based SR protocols? And yet, out of
the two protocols we have already currently, some servers only support
one of them?
The consequence is that clients that just works are bound to be SRU GET,
or try to be clever and configure (using a poll like mechaism)..
A client that configures itself from a URL initially, I assume, will try
all protocols using Explain using relevant protocols GET, POST, SOAP and
choose one that works (IF explain is returned protocol correspoinding
protocol is "checked" or?)
It's going to be fun for us protocol hackers.. :-)
