SerialSeb documents some of the problems folks run into when attempting some REST-ful things w/ URLs under Microsoft's IIS7. this is the kind of stuff that makes REST easy to 'discount' when using a server like IIS.

seems like some of this can be handled by employing a rewriter before handing things to IIS (my weapon of choice is ISAPI Rewrite), but some of it (as pointed out by Sebastian) is coming directly from IIS7 working to parse the URI directly.

it's worth pointing out that IIS7 takes a big leap to attempt handler-mapping without using "file extensions" and that's a good thing. but it looks like there are still some nasty issues to work out.
