the value of 3xx

in my reading of the rest-discuss list and digging around in general, i am starting to realize that the 3xx response code can be very valuable in dealing with proper handling of situations.

301 - moved permanently

does iis handle this at all?

302 - moved temporarily

shuttle the request to another uri for this moment - iis handles this one (not always well)

303 - see other

commonly used to redirect POST to another page - not using this at all, might be quite handy

304 - not modified

the resulting request has not changed since you last asked - i use this alot now

gotta get my hands into the 303!
