Re: RESTful transactions (a speculation)

I'm new to this - so forgive me if this is a silly suggestion;

Instead of a PUT just to update the existing config attributes, can you also use PUT to create a new config set?

Then use a PUT to make that the new config current ( a 'committ')

Maybe define a GET to retrieve past, current, and new config sets that have been PUT? (So you can rollback to one of them)

If this is silly - please let me know why.

Cheers,

Stephen
